Osborne Will Be Invoved In Big 10 Meetings

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska isn't waiting until next year to

get involved in the Big Ten.

Athletic director Tom Osborne will be at the league's preseason

meetings in Chicago early next month. Associate athletic director

Marc Boehm says the former football coach will be able to provide

input, but won't have a vote along with the other athletic

directors until July 1, 2011.

The Huskers will leave the Big 12 for the Big Ten after this

season in one of the biggest moves of the offseason realignment.

Big Ten officials are expected to discuss schedules and whether

the football teams should be divided into six-team divisions.
