The Big Ten has been very generous to Nebraska by offering them the chance to play in their conference. Play time is over. The Big Ten came out with the schedules for 2011 and 2012 and it is obvious that Nebraska has the toughest road of any team in the conference.
Welcome to the Big Ten Nebraska Cornhuskers! The Big 12 is probably saying don’t let the door hit you on your way out. Well the Big Ten has definitely said don’t let the door hit you on your way in if that makes any sense.
In their first two years of play in the Big Ten, the Cornhuskers will play these teams both seasons: Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Penn State. Not to mention, Nebraska will also play divisional foes Michigan State, Minnesota, and Northwestern, who all currently have rosters that should make them formidable opponents by the time Nebraska plays its first Big Ten game.
Good thing Nebraska has appeared to right the ship and start playing football the way they have in their past, or else this would be an even rougher beginning in a new conference.
