Northern Illinois to play Nebraska at Soldier Field in 2016

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Northern Illinois Huskies will play the Nebraska Cornhuskers at Soldier Field in 2016.

NIUHuskies.com Official Release

The Northern Illinois Huskies will take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Soldier Field in 2016.

The date is set for September 24th, 2016 for the NIU Huskies 4th trip heading into Soldier Field for a home game. The Huskies barely lost 17-18 in the opener against Iowa at Soldier Field, the only blemish on an otherwise perfect season.

After the 2016 game against Nebraska in Soldier Field, the Huskies will then make return trips to Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska on September 2nd, 2017 and September 14th, 2019.

I'm perfectly fine with this happening, even though it might help if we got some of these big schools to come to Huskie Stadium every once in a while. And you wonder why our attendance is low??? It's a financial windfall for everybody involved, but obviously some fans aren't going to be happy with this.

What are your predictions for 2016?

Will Rod Carey be in his 4th year coaching the NIU Huskies?

Will NIU be in the same conference? Will Nebraska?
