DEVELOPING STORY: Nebraska applying for membership to the Big Ten

Posted:

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA (KWWL) -- Just one day after Colorado announced that it will leave the Big 12 and join the Pac-10, Nebraska announces that it will apply for membership to the Big Ten.

If accepted, the moves will leave the Big 12 with 10 teams and the Big Ten with 12 teams.

NU Chancellor Harvey Perlman announced Friday afternoon that after careful consideration and informal discussions with the Big Ten, they are asking the Board of Regents to approve their application to the Big Ten.

Stay tuned to KWWL, on-air and on-line, for more on this developing story.
