Nebraska vote on Big Ten could come Friday

Nebraska could be on its way to the Big Ten by Friday.

The university's Board of Regents on Wednesday evening amended the agenda for its previously scheduled Friday meeting to include a briefing from chancellor Harvey Perlman and athletic director Tom Osborne on conference alignment. The regents could then vote to leave the Big 12.

Osborne said a decision has not been finalized, and he declined comment when asked whether the Big Ten had formally invited Nebraska to join the league.

The Cornhusker football team's offensive coordinator, Shawn Watson, said Osborne hasn't given the athletic department staff an indication which way Nebraska will go.

Watson said Osborne met with the staff last Friday to tell them about last week's Big 12 meetings and to "get a feel" for what the staff thinks about the Big 12 and Big Ten.

Since then, Watson said, Osborne hasn't updated the staff on developments.
