NCAA Football Odds: Big Change for Big Ten

Nebraska Cornhuskers Join the Big Ten

It was a good news bad news scenario for the Big 12. Good news: the Texas Longhorns aren’t going anywhere. The bad news: see ya later Nebraska (and Colorado too).

The ‘Huskers are headed to the Big Ten, while the Colorado Buffaloes are pulling up stakes for the Pac-10.

Nebraska still has another year facing the likes of the Longhorns, the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Oklahoma Sooners but come next summer, online sportsbooks will be putting up NCAA Football future odds on Nebraska vs. the likes of the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State Buckeyes and the Penn State Nittany Lions.

J.B. Milliken, the University of Nebraska’s president, thought it was prudent to join the Big Ten.

“The University of Nebraska would have new opportunities with membership in the Big Ten – and I believe the Big Ten would be a stronger conference as well,” he said in an AP report.

Based on the numbers, the Cornhuskers could be making a good move.

Since Sept. of 1995, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have faced Big Ten competition nine times, going 8-1 straight up and 6-3 against the spread.

With only nine games in the last 15 years, obviously the ‘Huskers haven’t faced all 11 teams in the Big Ten – yes, there are 11 teams despite the name of the conference – but here is how they’ve fared against the ones they have played.

They’ve played the Iowa Hawkeyes twice in the past 15 years, once in 1999 and once in 2000 and they hammered them both times. In both of those games they were huge favorites, covering in ’99 and failing to cover in 2000.

The ‘Huskers last played the Michigan Wolverines back in Dec. of 2005 at the Alamo Bowl and it was a 32-28 thriller in favor of Nebraska. For sports bettors who remember that game, you might recall the ‘Huskers covered as 10-point underdogs.

Based on history, the Cornhuskers should feast on the other school from the state of Michigan.

In three meetings against the Michigan State Spartans since 1995, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have gone 3-0 both straight up and ATS.

Will that dominance continue when the ‘Huskers face the Spartans regularly starting in 2011?

The last meeting between the Northwestern Wildcats is a game that the Nebraska Cornhuskers like to reminisce about.

It was the again the Alamo Bowl, this time in 2000, and led by QB Eric Crouch (remember him?) the Cornhuskers hammered Northwestern 66-21, covering the -14.5 points and going Over the 64.5-point Total.

Sorry to Big 12 fans, but I think this is a good move for Nebraska.
