It's Official: Nebraska Accepts Big Ten Invitation

We finally have official confirmation of the worst kept secret in all of college football. The University of Nebraska has officially accepted the Big Ten invitation to join the conference. According to the paper of record in Nebraska, the Omaha World-Herald:

Nebraska has officially accepted an invitation to join the Big Ten Conference, The World-Herald learned early Friday afternoon.

Two sources from conference offices said that Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany contacted BIg 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe on Friday morning to inform Beebe that Delany had officially invited Nebraska to join.

A source with direct knowledge of the situation said Nebraska accepted.

I think one of our readers, Lonemdg, summed it up best a couple of days ago in the way that only MS-Paint can:
