The Husker football team is off and running in preseason camp, Dalano Banton was drafted No. 46 overall to the Toronto Raptors and Lauren Stivrins detailed in a new podcast a May back surgery that has her next move still in limbo. That, and NU lands a verbal commitment from OL Valen Erickson mid-podcast.

The Huskers will travel to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to play the Demon Deacons on Dec. 1.

The announcement was made by the Big Ten and Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday. The COVID-19 pandemic prevented competition in the Challenge between the two tradition-rich conferences last season.

Wake Forest had a 12-13 record last season after losing in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Nebraska had a 13-13 record last season.

The Huskers haven't yet announced any other games for the 2021-22 season.
