LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) - The Nebraska baseball team continues its fall competition schedule next month at Hawks Field with a home exhibition game as well as the annual Red-White Series.
The Huskers will host Kansas in a 12-inning exhibition game on Saturday, Oct. 19, starting at 1:05 p.m. This marks the second consecutive year the Huskers and Jayhawks will square off in a fall game, as KU visited Lincoln on Oct. 6 for a scrimmage last year. In the all-time series between the former conference foes, Nebraska holds a 150-101-2 advantage.
The Kansas game marks the second of two exhibitions for the Huskers this fall. Last weekend, NU produced 18 hits, including four home runs, in a 10-8 win at Wichita State on Saturday. The NCAA Division I Council adopted legislation in April 2018 to allow two fall exhibitions that do not count toward a team’s 56-game spring schedule.
The annual Red-White Series is set for Oct. 9-11 at Hawks Field, with the start times to be announced for all three dates. The Red-White Series games and Kansas game are open to the public and free to attend.
