Idaho State will play at Nebraska on Sept. 22


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska has completed its 2012 football schedule with the announcement of a Sept. 22 home game against Idaho State.

The athletic department also said Thursday that non-conference home games have been finalized with Florida Atlantic in 2014, BYU in 2015 and South Alabama in 2015 and 2019.

Idaho State is an FCS member from the Big Sky Conference. The Bengals were 2-9 last season, with one of their wins against Division II Western State. They lost eight straight to finish.

In the past three seasons Idaho State has played BYU, Washington State, Georgia, Arizona State and Oklahoma.

The 2014 opener against Florida Atlantic will pit Nebraska coach Bo Pelini against his brother, Carl, who was named Owls head coach in December after serving as Bo's defensive coordinator from 2008-11.
