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.
Nebraska women's basketball season ticket renewals are underway through the Nebraska Ticket Office.
