2011 May Not Be Last Time Big 12 Meets Nebraska

One good part of all this Big 12 mess is that future bowl games could be a lot more interesting. Let's say, in 2015, Missouri and Nebraska are both angling for a spot in a bowl game.

They haven't played each other in four years so why not meet in a bowl game?

But what about a rematch, say, in Tempe, Ariz.? The Insight Bowl matches teams from the Big 12 and Big Ten, so who’s to say Missouri and Nebraska can’t eventually rekindle their rivalry at Sun Devil Stadium?

Or how about some day reviving Oklahoma-Nebraska in the desert?

“We have thought about that,” said Insight Bowl CEO John Junker, “and that’s potentially exciting.”

Yes, the rematches will now be a lot more exciting than the annual game. I imagine Mizzou and Kansas fans would be ready to beat the you-know-what out of Nebraska.
