The University of Nebraska released a strong statement after the Big Ten announced it was officially ending the fall football season. The statement from Nebraska leaders is that the school “will continue to consult with medical experts and evaluate the situation as it emerges. We hope it may be possible for our student-athletes to have the opportunity to compete.”
The end of that statement is open-ended and can be interpreted that the school could consider some sort of action that would allow the Cornhuskers to join a conference that is playing fall football. Nebraska to the Big 12 temporarily? Is it even possible? It’s 2020 and Scott Frost is about as rogue as it gets right now in college football.
Frost said Monday he hoped to play a Big Ten schedule, but “if it isn’t, I think we’re prepared to look for other options.” Today’s statement from the school indicates that the Huskers haven’t changed their stance.
