LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming Athletics Director Tom Burman and University of Nebraska Athletics Director Tom Osborne announced jointly on Tuesday that the Wyoming Cowboys and Nebraska Huskers have signed a contract for a three-game football series to begin in Laramie, Wyo., on Sept. 24, 2011. The second and third games in the series are to be played in Lincoln, Neb., on Aug. 31, 2013, and Sept. 17, 2016.
Nebraska's trip to Wyoming in 2011 will be the first appearance ever by the Huskers in Laramie.
"It is exciting to play a program with the tradition of Nebraska, while at the same time renewing a regional series against an old rival," said Burman. "I believe this is the kind of series our fans want us to play, and to be able to bring Nebraska to Laramie for the first time in history will be a special game for Cowboy fans.
"I want to thank Tom Osborne and Bo Pelini (Nebraska head football coach) for working with us to make this series a reality."
