Nebraska football vs Conference USA

Unsurprisingly, Conference USA has a couple of teams that the Nebraska football team hasn’t had a ton of trouble against. However, none of the teams the Huskers haven dominated have allowed themselves to play NU all that often.

It’s pretty clear when looking over this schedule that there are plenty of teams that were willing to take the money to play the Cornhuskers and get beat badly one or twice, but they didn’t want to make it a habit.

Western Kentucky: When the Huskers and Hilltoppers played, Western Kentucky was actually a member of the Sun Belt conference. The two teams have only faced off one time in the history of either program. That shouldn’t come as a huge surprise considering in the grand scheme of things, WKU hasn’t been in the FBS all that long. It’s also not surprising that the Huskers won that one matchup 49-10 in Memorial Stadium.

Middle Tennessee State: Like Western Kentucky, when MTSU ventured to Lincoln in 1992, it was not a member of Conference USA though they are now contributing to the rather putrid record against NU. The one trip to Memorial Stadium l[ed to the Blue Raiders losing 48-7.

Louisiana Tech: LaTech is the only CUSA team on this list that really gave the Huskers a run for their money in either of their two matchups. In 1998, they found a way to score a bushel of points, but they also gave up a ton in a 56-27 loss. When the two teams rematched in 2006, it wasn’t anywhere near the contest as Nebraska football won 49-10.

New Mexico State: The Aggies have been outscored 163-7 in three games against the Nebraska football program. That’s likely why the two teams haven’t played since 2008.
