LINCOLN–(NU Athletics June 22)–The Nebraska women’s basketball team will face a loaded 2023-24 home schedule that will include eight games against 2023 NCAA Tournament teams. The Huskers announced their non-conference schedule on Thursday in conjunction with the unveiling of the conference home and road plays by the Big Ten.
Nebraska will open its 2023-24 regular season at Pinnacle Bank Arena against Northwestern State on Monday, Nov. 6. Tip-off is set for noon (CT) and is expected to feature the annual Life Skills Sportsmanship Pep Rally prior to the game. The opener against the Demons will follow an exhibition game with Dakota Wesleyan in Lincoln (Oct. 29).
After a one-game road trip to Mountain West Conference runner-up Wyoming in Laramie (Nov. 10), the Huskers return to Lincoln to face Alcorn State (Nov. 14), before squaring off with NCAA Tournament-qualifier Creighton on Sunday, Nov. 19 at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
Following a Thanksgiving Tournament on the road, the Huskers will play four home non-conference games at Pinnacle Bank Arena, beginning with Florida Atlantic (Nov. 29). The Big Red will battle ACC foe Georgia Tech (Dec. 2), before continuing the home stand with UNC Wilmington (Dec. 5). Nebraska wraps up home non-conference play with 2023 NCAA Tournament qualifier and SWAC Tournament champion Southern (Dec. 17), before closing regular-season non-conference action at 2023 WNIT champion Kansas (Dec. 20).
Nebraska’s home Big Ten schedule will feature nearly all of the conference’s top teams from a year ago, including NCAA runner-up and Big Ten Tournament champion Iowa. The Huskers also will face Big Ten regular-season champion Indiana at Pinnacle Bank Arena, along with 2023 NCAA Elite Eight qualifier Maryland. NCAA Tournament qualifiers Michigan, Illinois and Purdue also make the journey to Lincoln this season, while Minnesota, Northwestern and Rutgers round out Nebraska’s home schedule.
The Huskers will face Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Purdue and Minnesota both home and away during the season. The Big Red will make road trips-only to Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin.
