On Monday, thejerseychaser.com reported that the major college football conferences are expanding. Today, the Big 10 made its move, inviting Nebraska and Missouri to join their mega-conference. According to the Omaha World Herald, the Huskies will accept the Big 10’s invitation on Friday.
Nebraska Athletic Director, Tom Osborne said: “We certainly don’t have anything against anybody in the Big 12. This decision is not going to be based on animosity or petty jealousy. You’re talking about something that could maintain for the next 75 to 100 years.”
Texas is a major player in the expansion of the mega-conferences. Texas is expected to join the Pac-10 and bring its big revenue with it.
