LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) - A big part of the Husker men’s basketball 2021-22 schedule came into place on Thursday, as the Big Ten Conference announced its pairings for the upcoming season. The Big Ten’s 20-game conference schedule features seven double-play opponents, along with six single-play opponents (three home and three away).

For this season, the Huskers will play home-and-home matchups with Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern, Ohio State, Rutgers and Wisconsin.  Nebraska will also play host to Illinois, Maryland, and Minnesota as its single-play home opponents, while Michigan State, Penn State and Purdue will be the Huskers’ road single-plays in 2021-22.

In all, the Huskers will play 14 of their 20 Big Ten games against teams which reached the NCAA Tournament last season, as the Big Ten placed nine teams (Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Purdue, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Maryland and Michigan State) in the NCAA Tournament in 2021.

With Thursday’s announcement, 21 Husker opponents are known to date, as Nebraska begins a three-game non-conference series with Kansas State with a December matchup at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The remainder of the Huskers’ non-conference schedule will be announced later this summer.
