Big Ten football might be right around the corner. We can expect an announcement one way or the other Tuesday night.

University of Nebraska President Ted Carter was caught on a hot mic before a press conference Tuesday morning saying, “We're getting ready to announce the Huskers and Big Ten football tonight," while talking with Bob Hinson, director of the National Strategic Research Institute.

Dan Patrick reported Monday the Big Ten would begin play in October, but without Michigan and Michigan State.That has since been disputed by various reports, which claim the conference will proceed with all 14 teams or not at all.

There is no official word on an announcement from the Big Ten.
