Oregon and Nebraska haven't met since 1986. That will soon change. Oregon will travel to Lincoln for a game on Sept. 16, 2016, with Nebraska visiting Eugene for the first time on Sept. 9, 2017.
The athletic departments will exchange $1 million payouts to the visiting team in each year of this series. This is a big win for playoff-era scheduling, as the agreement should pave the way for other big programs to seek top competition.
