Ohio State and Nebraska will square off at at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 14.
This is just the Buckeyes’ second ever trip to Lincoln, with the first coming in 2011. Ohio State has thus far performed very well on the road in 2017. The Buckeyes opened the season with a 49-21 win at Indiana and then demolished Rutgers 56-0 on Saturday. The Cornhuskers will be looking for a big win after a disappointing start to the season that has raised questions about the future of head coach Mike Riley.

Ohio State-Nebraska series history
Ohio State and Nebraska have played five times, with three of those coming since the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten in 2011. The Buckeyes beat Nebraska in Columbus in both 1955 and 1956 under legendary coach Woody Hayes, winning by margins of 28-20 and 34-7. The teams didn’t meet again until 2011, when Nebraska won in the only game to date in Lincoln. Ohio State has been flawless against the Huskers under Urban Meyer, though, winning 63-38 in 2012 and 62-3 in 2016.
Nebraska once appeared as though it might be a test for the Buckeyes in 2017, but the results thus far indicate otherwise. Even the fact that it’s a road game doesn’t carry much weight, given that Northern Illinois went into Lincoln and beat the Huskers. Nebraska has responded to that humiliating loss by starting Big Ten play with a pair of wins, but those are against arguably the two worst teams in the conference in Rutgers and Illinois.
The two wins by Ohio State under Meyer both came in Columbus, so this will be a chance for the Buckeyes to get their first ever win in Lincoln. It will also be the Buckeyes’ last game before facing Penn State, though they have an off week in between the Cornhuskers and Nittany Lions.
