Nebraska, Akron reach agreement on cancellation

To make up for a football game that was supposed to be played this season but was canceled, Nebraska will host Akron in 2025, paying the Zips $1.45 million on top of another $650,000.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Nebraska announces that it will pay Akron $650K for the cancelled game in Week 1 of this year. The original agreement called for a payout of $1.17 million if the game was played. Also, the Huskers and Zips will play in Lincoln on Sept. 6, 2025. Hope for nice weather.
