FARGO — When North Dakota State fans left TCF Bank Field in the wake of a 37-24 victory in 2011, the hope for many was to book a return trip to the University of Minnesota as soon as possible. ASAP is quickly turning to no chance at all.

The bigger Big Ten is ready to go.
After talking about the move for more than a year, the biggest addition — No. 10 Nebraska — will begin its season Saturday and all 12 conference members are in action this week in a league that will have two divisions and a title game for the first time.

CHICAGO (AP) — Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson will look different to Big Ten fans this season.
No, he didn’t cut his dreadlocks. They’ll still be flapping out the back of his helmet as he sprints past defenders.
And, no, he’s not about to start tying his shoelaces.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Big Ten gathered in its Midwestern hub city to usher in — and celebrate — a new era in one of college football’s most tradition-rich conferences.
The league has a new format, with two divisions and a championship game, and a new powerhouse member in Nebraska to help draw viewers to its already lucrative television network.
Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel received an e-mail last April telling him that two of his players were caught up in a federal drug-trafficking case and the sale of memorabilia, breaking NCAA rules.
CHICAGO — It’s the end of the Big Ten as we know it.
With Nebraska joining in 2011 — not to mention the possibility of others also climbing aboard the expansion train — the Big Misnomer puts its 11-team alignment on the field for one final time this fall.
Next season the conference will go to a divisional setup and begin playing a conference championship extravaganza.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Big Ten has chosen Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis as the site for the first Big Ten football championship game in 2011.
John Dedman, spokesman for the Indiana Sports Corp., said the Big Ten approached Indianapolis to host the event, and there was no formal bidding process.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska isn’t waiting until next year to get involved in the Big Ten.
Athletic director Tom Osborne will be at the league’s preseason meetings in Chicago early next month. Associate athletic director Marc Boehm says the former football coach will be able to provide input, but won’t have a vote along with the other athletic directors until July 1, 2011.
Lawrence Westbrook won a terrific duel with Talor Battle, tying his career high with 29 points to lead Minnesota to a 75-70 victory over Penn State on Tuesday night in a Big Ten opener.
Battle had 23 points, six rebounds and four assists for the Nittany Lions (8-5, 0-1) but couldn’t quite match Westbrook shot for shot down the stretch.
The Big Ten might be getting bigger.
Commissioner Jim Delany said Tuesday the conference is going to explore options over the next 12 to 18 months for expanding the league. The league’s presidents and chancellors decided this month that the timing is right to study adding a 12th school.
UND and Minnesota will pack about 12,000 frenzied fans in Ralph Engelstad Arena this weekend for the longest standing college hockey rivalry in the country.
Don’t expect the rivalry to go anywhere, despite the University of Wisconsin’s wishes that the Gophers pull out of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and start up a Big Ten Hockey Conference.
