Nebraska will begin play as a Big Ten Conference member in 2011, but the Huskers aren't strangers to their new league brethren.

Nebraska has played every Big Ten school at least once and has extensive history with several programs. The Huskers haven't played a regular-season game against a Big Ten foe since 2003 (Penn State), though they faced (and beat) three Big Ten squads in the Alamo Bowl during the past decade.
