Husker women reveal eight-game home nonconference slate

Nebraska vs. Minnesota, 1.19

Nebraska's Whitney Brown (left) scores against Minnesota's Kayla Mershon at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Jan. 19. Mershon, a former Husker, has started the last four games for Minnesota.

Steven M. Sipple, Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett ring in the big No. 200 with a recap of a busy first week of preseason camp for the Nebraska football program. So far, QB Adrian Martinez has received glowing reviews and a couple of in-state inside linebackers (and a local wide receiver) are considered potential breakout candidates. That, plus the health of the running back room and some thoughts on where special teams battles stand currently and more. 

The Nebraska women's basketball team plans to welcome fans back to Pinnacle Bank Arena with an eight-game regular-season home nonconference schedule in the fall of 2021.

Nebraska's home nonconference schedule, which features games against Creighton, Drake, Indiana State, Maine and Wyoming, along with contests against Alabama A&M, North Carolina Central and Prairie View A&M, is part of an 11-game nonconference schedule that includes a Big Ten/ACC Challenge game at Wake Forest, and a pair of Thanksgiving tournament games in San Diego.

Nebraska's schedule will feature five teams that advanced to postseason play a year ago: Drexel (NCAA), Wake Forest (NCAA), Wyoming (NCAA), Drake (WNIT) and Fresno State (WNIT).

Husker fans will get their first chance to see Nebraska in action during an exhibition game against Midland on Nov. 1. The Warriors are coached by former Husker women's basketball staffer Shawn Gilbert.

Nebraska's opponent on Dec. 22, Wyoming, has former Omaha Westside standout Quinn Weidemann on the roster.
