Penn State-Nebraska annual rivalry likely guaranteed

On the Big Ten divisions announcement special on the BTN tonight, it was announced that Penn State and Nebraska will be a protected annual protected inter-divisional rivalry game.

This significantly boosts Penn State's annual strength of schedule, and is a fantastic, though somewhat expected development. I haven't heard anything about the Penn State/Michigan State rivalry, but will update this post when I do.

The divisions are as prognosticated throughout the day...

(NOT the official names)
Div 1: Indiana, Illinois, Purdue, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin
Div 2: Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Nebraska

Commish Jim Delaney said this would only affect football, for obvious reasons. Basketball will be up to the athletic directors and stuff. Over the next few weeks, we'll hear names for these divisions, and new logos, etc.
