Athletic Director Tom Osborne says the decision could affect the University of Nebraska for 75 to 100 years – and it has become official today. At their regular monthly meeting today, the NU Board of Regents announced a much speculated move for Nebraska to join the Big 10 Conference. The Regents voted on a resolution regarding NU conference affiliation.
They will apply to become part of the conference and approval is expected.
If approved, Nebraska would begin athletic competition in the Big 10 Conference in the fall of 2011.
