Cornhuskers to bring in FCS Fordham for September home game

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska finalized its 2021 football schedule with the addition of a home game against Fordham on Sept. 4, replacing a previously scheduled November game against Southeastern Louisiana.

The game against the Rams, a Football Championship Subdivision member in New York City, was announced Monday and gives Nebraska two home dates in September.

Fordham will be playing an opponent from a Power Five conference for the first time since 1954, the last season before the program went on hiatus for nine years. Nebraska will pay a $500,000 guarantee.
