On Tuesday, Sanford Sports released a pair of matchups coming up in November involving the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Tickets are not yet available, and won't be until August 15th, but now is the time to add the pair of games to your calendar for the Fall.

Per Sanford Sports:

For the men, this marks the third appearance for the Cornhuskers at the Sanford Pentagon while the Gaels will be playing at the Pentagon for the fifth time. This will be the first game for the Nebraska women on Heritage Court and the 11th for the USD women. An NBA Jam 90s throwback theme will be integrated into the game and fan experience for both events.


“This will be an unprecedented weekend of Division I basketball at the Sanford Pentagon with four teams coming off outstanding years resulting in trips to the postseason,” said Jesse Smith, vice president of Sanford Sports. “Hosting premier games on back-to-back days is the perfect way to get fans excited about the start of the college basketball season.”

The Sanford Pentagon has hosted a long list of premier college basketball action dating back to 2013 and hosted 4 games last season.

We're still in wait-and-see mode about future announcements, but the back-to-back contests in mid-November already provides a headliner for the upcoming season at the Pentagon.

35 Movies That Take Place in South Dakota

When it comes to South Dakota and Hollywood, we've seen our fair share of films that have used our state as the backdrop for a number of productions over the years. They may not have always filmed here, but movie folk love to set stories here.

We're all familiar with the blockbusters like 1990's Dances With Wolves, 1959's North By Northwest, and more recently, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets. But our state's life on the big screen goes back nearly 100 years.

According to IMDb, it all started with Courtin' Wildcats, a 1929 film which, like so many of the 29 films on this list, is a Western set in the time before South Dakota became a state in 1889.
