New Developments in Big XII Conference Drama

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska plans to apply for membership in the Big Ten Conference and expects to be accepted.

Chancellor Harvey Perlman disclosed the plan Friday during a meeting of the university's Board of Regents. Nebraska's departure would be a big blow to the Big 12, which lost Colorado to the Pac-10 Conference on Thursday.
