Husker football finalizes 2012 schedule

After a majority of the games for the Nebraska 2012 football season had already been announced earlier this year, the Huskers finalized the remaining games on their schedule Thursday while also announcing future non-conference contests for upcoming seasons.

In the latest version on of next season’s schedule, Nebraska added Idaho State to top off its non-conference play, while the Huskers added matchups with Brigham Young, Florida Atlantic, and South Alabama for future years. Nebraska will face off with Carl Pelini, the Huskers’ former defensive coordinator and brother of coach Bo Pelini, when they take on Florida Atlantic in 2014, while NU has also slated a game with BYU for 2015 and a pair of contests against South Alabama in 2015 and 2019.
