- September 4th: Western Kentucky
- September 11th: Idaho
- September 18th: at Washington
- September 25th: South Dakota State (1-AA)
And the previously announced 2008 schedule has been revised as well to start the season Labor Day weekend:
- August 30th: Western Michigan (Sagarin #103 in 2007)
- September 6th: San Jose State (Sagarin #113 in 2007)
- September 13th: New Mexico State (Sagarin #153 in 2007)
- September 27th: Virginia Tech (Sagarin #5 in 2007)
Some people will use the excuse that "everybody is doing it"... and yes, Nebraska needs 7 home games a season. But that doesn't excuse playing eight home games in 2008 against that type of competition. Heck, with Western Michigan open to playing Labor Day weekend, you could have scheduled Michigan instead of San Jose State for September 6th and made that a much more acceptable schedule.
The 2010 schedule is completely embarrassing, especially if Washington doesn't start to improve quickly. Ohio State played that type of schedule this season, and I feel that is enough to disqualify the Buckeyes from from playing for the BCS national championship. Hopefully, 2010 is the last season we'll see teams like that filling the Husker schedule. If Nebraska is going to schedule teams like that, might as well schedule Nebraska-Omaha and keep the money in the University system.
