Nebraska, Oregon to play in 2016, 2017

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska has delayed games against Tennessee for a decade but found a substitute opponent: Oregon.

Nebraska officials say Tennessee had asked to delay their 2016 and 2017 games, which have been rescheduled to Sept. 12, 2026, in Lincoln and Sept. 11, 2027, in Knoxville.

The Lincoln game with Oregon is scheduled for Sept. 17, 2016, and the Eugene game is set for Sept. 9, 2017.

The Huskers delayed their 2016 game against Wyoming to accommodate the schedule change. It's now set for Sept. 10, 2016, at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Nebraska has beaten Oregon five times in their six games. They last met in 1986 in Lincoln.

There was pomp and circumstance and a full house and all eight CWS teams lining up around the infield before the game, with a player from each throwing the ceremonial first pitch. Great visual.
