One of the biggest stories in college athletics this past year was Nebraska’s decision to move from the Big 12 to the Big Ten. But how did the Big Red make the transition to the Big Ten? Watch now and learn more about the timeline and how the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten.
Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith visited Nebraska practice on our BTN Football Tour in August. The Huskers, of course, enter their first season in the Big Ten this fall. Led by an experienced and talented defense, Bo Pelini’s team will be an immediate force. With the return of Jared Crick, Lavonte David and Alfonzo Dennard, among others, Nebraska’s D could prove to be the Big Ten’s elite unit. And its offense isn’t too bad, either, led by dynamic QB Taylor Martinez. The Huskers open the season Sept. 3 vs. UT-Chattanooga. Watch all of our Nebraska Preview video inside.
Casual Nebraska fans know the school’s steep football tradition, but they don’t know much about the volleyball program. Well, John Cook’s team has been the school’s most successful program in the new millennium, winning nine Big 12 championships and the 2000 and 2006 national titles. Cook, a two-time national coach of the year, says Nebraska has a big challenge ahead of itself in the loaded Big Ten: “I think this is going to be the premier volleyball conference in the country.”
