In a shocking move, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have fired baseball coach Mike Anderson.

The Cornhuskers were 30-25 this season, but were only 9-17 in the Big 12 Conference.

Anderson was very succesful, with an overall record of 337-196-2 in nine years with Nebraska. The Cornhuskers won two Big 12 titles and appeared in the 2005 College World Series under Anderson.

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.

Lucas Oil Stadium will host first Big Ten football championship game in 2011

The Big Ten Conference has chosen Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis as the host for its first football championship in 2011.

Lucas Oil Stadium is also the home of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.

The Big Ten announced on Thursday that the Indiana Sports Corporation will work out the details of the one-year deal in the next 30 days.

Indiana University, 50 miles away to south in Bloomington and Purdue University, 65 miles to the north in West Lafayette, will have the shortest driving distances of the conferences schools.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers will join the conference in 2011, giving the Big Ten 12 teams, the amount required by the NCAA to be able to hold a championship game. The Lincoln, Nebraska school is the farthest away from Indianapolis at 640 miles.

Nebraska Cornhuskers join the Big Ten; 12 teams means title game coming

compiled from Big Ten and Nebraska Cornhuskers news

The Nebraska Cornhuskers will now have trips to places they ordinarily wouldn’t travel to: Chicago, Illinois (Northwestern), Columbus, Ohio (Ohio State), Greater Detroit (Michigan), East Lansing (Michigan State) and State College, Pennsylvania (Penn State).

That’s because, the Cornhuskers are saying “goodbye” to the Big 12 and “hello” to the Big 10 Conference.

The Big Ten’s board of presidents and chancellors unanimously welcomed Nebraska to the family on Friday afternoon. The move takes effect on July 1, 2011.

Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman said the Big ten offered the stability “that the Big 12 couldn’t.”

Nebraska is the Big ten’s first new member since 1900, when Penn State became the 11th member, and it comes just six month’s after the league announced that it was looking at expansion.

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said he presumed there would be a Big Ten championship football game beginning in 2011. He said the conference will not be looking at anymore expansion at least for the next 12 to 18 months.

Most Nebraska fans are used to playing against the likes of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa State and Kansas State for years. But now they’ll have to get to know the Big Ten schools.

With the move to the Big Ten, they’ll likely start a rivalry with their border neighbor, the Iowa Hawkeyes.
