LINCOLN, Neb. — University of Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos announced Friday several measures intended to mitigate the anticipated significant financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

No merit increases for all Department employees in Fiscal Year 2021
Sports programs are encouraged to build a more regional non-conference away schedule, which will limit public exposures and allow for a reduction in travel costs
