Nebraska To The Big Ten Official

New, 138 comments


Reports out of Omaha and Kansas City are both saying it is official. Nebraska has been offered in invitation to join the Big Ten, and the Cornhuskers have accepted the invitation.

The University of Nebraska has accepted an offer to join the Big Ten Conference, The Kansas City Star has learned.

Late this morning, Nebraska officials contacted the Big Ten office, informing the league of the decision. Nebraska will become the 12th member of the Big Ten.

I know. That' s what I just said, guy in the blue box.

Sorry. It's just my job. I have nothing else to say.

 As for the rest of the Big XII, Texas will think about it over the weekend and hold a meeting on Monday.

And the outcasts of Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, and Iowa State? Looks like the Big East is trying to make a play for them.

Anyone who thought that the Big East was just going to sit around and watch the Big Ten take Rutgers and possibly Syracuse and Pitt simply does now know the passion of the conference.

Once word began to spread that Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and perhaps Missouri would be looking for a home the Big East became very interested in talking to them about joining the league.
