Nebraska reportedly ready to join Big Ten this week

Nebraska may become a member of the Big Ten Conference as early as Friday, the World-Herald of Omaha, Neb., reports.

The newspaper cites an unnamed executive at a Big 12 school who provided that timetable. It also cites two sources from other Big 12 schools who said that their athletic directors have been told to be ready for a briefing on “probable Big 12 changes” by week’s end.
