LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska has signed a contract to play four football games against former Big Eight and Big 12 rival Colorado beginning in five years.

Nebraska said Thursday that the teams will meet in Lincoln on Sept. 8, 2018, before a return matchup in Boulder on Sept. 7, 2019. Colorado will host the Cornhuskers on Sept. 9, 2023, and return to Lincoln on Sept. 7, 2024.

The games will be the first in the series since both schools left the Big 12 two years ago, Nebraska going to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac-12. The football teams last played in 2010 after meeting for 63 consecutive years.

Nebraska holds a 49-18-2 advantage in the series, including a 15-4 record since 1992.
