Huskers To Play At Soldier Field

Huskers To Play At Soldier Field

By Garrett Gordon. CREATED Dec 17, 2012

Lincoln, NE - For the first time in school history the Huskers will play a football game at historic Soldier Field.  Nebraska has agreed to play a three game series with Northern Illinois starting in 2016.

The first game of the series will be played at Soldier Field.  The games in 2017 and 2018 will be played at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Northern Illinois is 12-1 this season, and they earned a B-C-S bowl bid due to their success.  The Huskies are one of the most consistently good mid-major programs in the nation.
