Nebraska will welcome Seton Hall to Lincoln for the first time in school history as the Big Ten and Big East conferences announced the pairings for the 2018 Gavitt Tipoff Games on Tuesday.
Creighton will host Ohio State on Nov. 15 at CenturyLink Center Omaha, while Nebraska will host the Pirates on Nov. 14 at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
Start time and TV information for both games will be announced at a later date. However, all Gavitt Tipoff Games are televised nationally on either FS1 or BTN.
Nebraska’s 2018 matchup with Seton Hall will mark the first time in three appearances that Nebraska has hosted a Gavitt Tip-off Games matchup. The Huskers previously made trips to Villanova (2015) and St. John’s (2017). Both games were losses.
Creighton lost to Indiana in 2015, beat Wisconsin in 2016 and won at Northwestern last year.
The Gavitt Tip-off Games is part of the Huskers’ non-conference schedule that will also feature two games in Kansas City for the Hall of Fame Classic (Texas Tech, USC and Missouri State), a ACC/Big Ten Challenge match-up and of course the annual match-up with Creighton, which Nebraska will host this year.
The 2018-19 schedule will also include 20 Big Ten games. Pairings were announced last month.
