This will be the third all-time meeting between the Bulldogs and ‘Huskers and the first since 2006. Nebraska leads the series 2-0.
La Tech and Nebraska first faced off on a memorable day in 1998. Bulldog wide receiver Troy Edwards tallied 405 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the second annual Eddie Robinson Classic.
Although then No. 4 Nebraska won 56-27, Edwards’ 405 yards still stands as the all-time record for most receiving yards in a game by a single player. Edwards would tally 1,996 receiving yards that season, which stands as the second-most all time behind Trevor Insley of Nevada.
Tech quarterback Tim Rattay threw for 590 yards and four touchdowns that game. His first touchdown was to Sean Cangelosi to get the Dawgs on the board. He would follow that up with a trio of touchdown passes to Edwards of 52, 94 and 80 yards.
Tech has now finished its 2023 non-conference schedule. The road game at Nebraska joins previously announced matchups against Baylor, Bowling Green and SMU.
This announcement comes a day after Tech announced a trio of future FCS opponents. Tech will host Prairie View A&M in 2020, Southeastern Louisiana in 2021 and Stephen F. Austin in 2022.
