Teddy Greenstein of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE reports Wednesday:
The Big Red will be joining the Big Ten.
A source with knowledge of the expansion talks has confirmed to the Tribune that Nebraska will be invited to apply for Big Ten membership.
The league has not determined, the source said, whether it will remain at 12 schools or expand to 14 or 16.
Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said Sunday that the league “could act and act again” - meaning that expansion could occur in phases.
The official website of the University of Nebraska lists “Resolution regarding UNL conference alignment” as being on the agenda of the NU Board of Regents meeting Friday at 1pm CT.
The meeting will not be televised but audio will be available on the official NU website.
Sean Callahan of KFAB-AM in Omaha also has this official statement from NU on Wednesday afternoon: “No action was taken during today’s (Regents executive committee) conference call, and none will be taken prior to Friday’s meeting.”
