For years, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have played a football game the day after Thanksgiving.

From now on, they’ll be playing against a Big Ten opponent.

Iowa and Nebraska will play on the Friday after Thanksgiving in each of the next two seasons.

The two schools announced on Monday that they’ll play November 25 in Lincoln and In Iowa City on November 23, 2012.

The Cornhuskers will leave the Big 12 for the Big 10 after this school year ends in June.

Nebraska playing on Thanksgiving or the next day, started in the 1960′s playing their arch-rivals, the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Huskies had been playing Colorado, on the Friday after Thanksgiving every season since 1996.

Just like Nebraska, Colorado is leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-12.
