For years, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have played a football game the day after Thanksgiving.

From now on, they’ll be playing against a Big Ten opponent.

Iowa and Nebraska will play on the Friday after Thanksgiving in each of the next two seasons.

The two schools announced on Monday that they’ll play November 25 in Lincoln and In Iowa City on November 23, 2012.

The Cornhuskers will leave the Big 12 for the Big 10 after this school year ends in June.

Nebraska playing on Thanksgiving or the next day, started in the 1960′s playing their arch-rivals, the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Huskies had been playing Colorado, on the Friday after Thanksgiving every season since 1996.

Just like Nebraska, Colorado is leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-12.

Iowa sophomore guard Jaime Printy took control in the second half for the Hawkeyes, who are now 14-2, 2-2 in the Big Ten. Printy scored 25 points to lead Iowa.

The Buckeyes, who dropped to 10-5, 1-2 in the Big Ten, shot the ball miserably from the three-point line, going 4-22. That allowed the Hawkeyes to smother center Jantel Lavender and make getting passes into the most tough.

Samantha Prahalis scored 22 points to lead the Buckeyes.

The Ohio State men’s basketball team survived a scare in Iowa City. But like most ranked teams, they know how to win and no deficit is to big to overcome.

The second-ranked basketball team kicked their defense into high-octane gear which keyed a 16-0 run in the second half last night and held on for a 73-68 win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

This is the first time in the history of the Ohio State program that the Buckeyes (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) had won back-to-back road games to start the Big Ten season.

It was their ninth consecutive road win overall and eighth in a row in the Big Ten, dating to last season.

Jared Sullinger led the Buckeyes with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Jon Diebler scored 14 points and David Lighty with 12.

Iowa, now 7-7 overall (0-2) playing without second leading scorer Eric May, who has been out of the lineup because of a groin injury, were led by freshman Melsahn Basabe with 22 points and 13 rebounds.

The Buckeyes trailed most of the first half against a hungry Hawkeyes team; the halftime score was 35-29. In the second half, Ohio State went inside to Sullinger who started to take over and they took their first lead of the game, 38-36 with 17:38 to play.

One last look: Ohio State rallies at Iowa, 20-17

The Ohio State Buckeyes came very close to losing at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

Wide receiver DeVier Posey dropped a third down pass in the end zone that put the Buckeyes Big Ten championship hopes on the ropes.

With 4:02 left in the game, the Buckeyes were trailing the Hawkeyes by a score of 17-13 and it was fourth down and 10 at the 50-yard line. No big deal to QB Terrelle Pryor. The junior took matters into his own hands and on the next play, he ran 14 yards for the first down. Three plays later, Dane Sanzenbacher made a leaping catch, 24 yards down the field at the Iowa 2. Two plays later, Daniel Herron blasted into the end zone for the touchdown that sealed the deal as Ohio State beat Iowa, 20-17.

With the win, Ohio State stayed in the hunt for at least a share of a record-tying sixth straight Big Ten title to match the titles they won in the 1970′s.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor went 18-of-33 passing with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also rushed 15 times for 78 yards.

Pryor needed 78 yards rushing to reach 2,000 for his career, and had exactly 78. He is second to Cornelius Greene (2,066) for quarterback rushing yards at Ohio State.

The Iowa defense held the Buckeyes in check allowing 223 yards and 12 first downs in the first three quarters, but allowed 130 yards and nine first downs in the all-important fourth quarter.
