What's old will be new again in a few years for the University of Colorado football program.
The Boulder Daily Camera is reporting that former Big 12 rivals Colorado and Nebraska will play four times between 2018 and 2024.
Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn made the announcement at the school’s annual recruiting luncheon in downtown Denver, much to the approval of the nearly 1,000 people in attendance, according to the CU athletic department's website. Bohn arranged the series with Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne just prior to Osborne's retirement.
The Buffaloes and Cornhuskers will meet in Lincoln on Sept. 8, 2018 in the first game. Other scheduled games include: Nebraska at Colorado, Sept. 7, 2019; Nebraska at Colorado, Sept. 9, 2023; and Colorado at Nebraska, Sept. 7, 2024.
The Huskers own a 49-18-2 series record. The most recent game between the schools was played Nov. 26, 2010, with Nebraska winning 45-17 in Lincoln.
The contract calls for $300,000 payments from the home team to the visitor in each of the four designated years of the games, with a buyout clause of $1 million if either team wants to cancel out of a game, according to the CU website.
