      LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska's membership in the Big Ten
Conference is official.
      The Big Ten's board of presidents and chancellors unanimously
approved adding Nebraska on Friday, just a few hours after the
school formally disclosed its interest.
      The move is a potentially crippling blow to the Big 12 and the
biggest move yet in an offseason overhaul that will leave college
sports looking much different by this time next year.
      Chancellor Harvey Perlman says the move offers stability "that
the Big 12 simply cannot offer." The move becomes official July 1,
2011.
