The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Oregon Ducks will square off for the first time since 1986 as part of a home-and-home series set to begin in 2016, according to ESPN.

Nebraska and Oregon were able to agree to the series after the Cornhuskers moved their planned series with the University of Tennessee from 2016-2017 to 2026-2027.

The first of the two contests will take place at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore., on September 17, 2016, before moving to Lincoln, Neb., on September 9th of the following year.

Nebraska has 3 years to fix that defense.  Ain't gonna happen...

Nebraska should stay away from Pac-12 teams. Perhaps on old Big-12 ex-conference mate (Oklahoma, come'on).

From what I've read locally and on other news sites the game in 2016 will be in Lincoln and in Eugene in 2017 not what you have listed, SI.

As far as getting whopped, Cool, you never know.  Tommy Armstrong would be a Senior that year, for example. It's why I love college football...you never know.

Well that deal with UCLA worked out so well for us, why not let Oregon kick our butts all across the field for two years?

@Husker1 Remember when we were using that same line on Taylor Martinez?  "Oh yeah, just wait until he is a senior... Heisman baby... national championship... "    Forgive me for believing that Beck will hold Armstrong back and play him conservatively.
