College football is going international again. Nebraska will play Northwestern in Dublin on Saturday. It’s the first regular-season international game in five years.

Ireland has a five-game deal in place with organizers for the series dubbed the Aer Lingus College Football Classic.

The pandemic affected plans for the first two games. Ireland first hosted a game in 1988 when Boston College beat Army 38-24.

It’s Northwestern first time abroad and Nebraska’s second. The Huskers beat Kansas State 38-24 in Tokyo in 1992.
