TV program explores how Big Ten move affects research

With Nebraska’s move to the Big Ten Conference, there’s been a lot of discussion about new opponents and new sports rivalries. But, moving from the Big 12 to the Big Ten means more than athletic changes for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln  — academics and research will also be affected. The NET News production “Nebraska and The Big Ten: Researching the Possibilities” focuses on this additional aspect of UNL’s conference move. It airs Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. on NET1/HD.

In the 30-minute interview special, NET News Director Dennis Kellogg talks to UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman, as well as Penn State President and former UNL Chancellor Graham Spanier, about how the move will impact academics and research.

“Nebraska and The Big Ten: Researching the Possibilities” repeats on NET2 Saturday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. CT and Sunday, Aug. 28, at 8 a.m. It can also be seen on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 1 p.m. CT on NET1/HD. The program will also be broadcast on NET Radio Saturday, Aug. 27, at 7 a.m. CT.
