Omaha World-Herald - NU to Big 10 as early as Friday?

The Omaha World-Herald's Lee Barfknecht writes that Nebraska's announcement on a move to the Big 10 could come as early as Friday.

Direct confirmation from Nebraska of a conference change for the Huskers wasn't immediately available. Sources at two other Big 12 schools told The World-Herald that their athletic directors have instructed them to be ready by week's end for a briefing on probable Big 12 changes.

Nebraska A.D. Tom Osborne offered implicit confirmation Tuesday night that the timetable on national conference realignment has been accelerated.

On his monthly appearance on the Husker Sports Network, Osborne said:

"I think before too long — I don't know exactly what that time frame is — we'll be able to put this to bed," then he jokingly added, "because I'm getting tired of it."

... let the games begin!
