LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska has announced a 3-game football series with Northern Illinois, including a game at Chicago's Soldier Field.

Nebraska associate athletic director for football Jeff Jamrog said Monday that the first of the three games will take place at Soldier Field on Sept. 24, 2016. Northern Illinois has played neutral-site games the past two years at Soldier Field against Wisconsin and Iowa.

Northern Illinois will visit Lincoln on Sept. 2, 2017 and on Sept. 14, 2019.

Nebraska has won the only previous meetings against Northern Illinois, winning in Lincoln in 1989 and 1990.

The Huskies are 12-1 this season and will play in the Orange Bowl against Florida State.

Nebraska also announced it has completed its 2014 non-conference schedule with the addition of a Sept. 6 game against McNeese State.
