The original schedule of Nebraska's 2017-18 season had the Huskers traveling this weekend. However, the 9th-ranked Huskers will be at the Devaney Center Saturday night. And leave it to the Super Bowl to change NU's plans.
With Super Bowl LII taking place in Minneapolis, no hotels were able to accommodate a visiting gymnastics team. As a result, the Minnesota Golden Gophers pursued a road meet. The Big Ten intervened, adjusting schedules for Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois.
Nebraska head coach Dan Kendig says that there is a Big Ten rule that prohibits a gymnastics team from having three consecutive road or home meets. However, the conference is making an exception this weekend.
