After having its matchup against Nebraska postponed due to COVID-19 back in January, Maryland men’s basketball will now play the Cornhuskers in back-to-back matchups, the team announced Thursday.
The first game, on Feb. 16, serves as the rescheduled matchup from January, while the game on Feb. 17 was originally scheduled to be played in Lincoln, but was moved to College Park.
With this matchup being rescheduled, Maryland no longer has any Big Ten games up in the air. The Terps are back on track to complete their 20-game league schedule.
This is the first time since 1949 that Maryland is playing back-to-back matchups against the same opponent and the first time it is doing so at home since 1927.
Last year in the only meeting between the two teams, Maryland squeaked by with a 72-70 win.
