AKRON — The University of Akron has confirmed that they have reached a settlement with the University of Nebraska related to a $1.17 million payout that UA was set to earn in a football game between the two schools earlier this season.
Questions surfaced over whether UA would receive the $1.17 million payout from Nebraska after the season opening football game between the Zips and Cornhuskers in Lincoln, Neb. was canceled due to weather on September 1.
On Thursday afternoon, UA confirmed to WKYC that a settlement had been reached between the two schools, but details were not immediately available.
In September, UA Athletic Director Larry Williams stated that Akron had “every expectation that Nebraska will abide by the terms of the contract.”
