|Nebraska Regents to Discuss Big 12 vs. Big Ten
|OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A member of the University of Nebraska board of regents says he expects the group to discuss whether the Cornhuskers should stay in the Big 12 or move to the Big Ten at Friday's meeting.
NU regent Chuck Hassebrook says he expects conference affiliation will be added to the meeting agenda.
According to media reports, the Big 12 has given Nebraska and Missouri a Friday deadline to affirm their commitment to the league. The two schools are among the leading candidates should the Big Ten expand.
Athletic director Tom Osborne said in a radio interview Tuesday night that a decision should come soon.
