No opponents changed from being set in 2017, but the dates and locations did move. Notably for Nebraska, the Iowa game in Lincoln will take place on Black Friday. Additionally, Wisconsin is on the road, so the Huskers will host either the Hawkeyes or Badgers each season going forward.

Nebraska is still set to open the season August 28 against Illinois in Dublin, though recently that game being held overseas have become more doubtful. If moved, it would be an Illini home game.

Home games for Nebraska include Northwestern, Michigan, Purdue, Ohio State, and Iowa. Road trips include Illinois (in Dublin), Michigan State, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
