Huskers closing in on A&M for 'GameDay'

5/10/2012

Nebraska's distaste of all things Texas has subsided a bit now that the Huskers are in the Big Ten. The Huskers won't be regularly competing with Texas and Texas A&M on the gridiron any longer.

But in the contest to bring ESPN's "College GameDay" to campus, Nebraska finds itself alongside a familiar foe.

To no surprise, Nebraska fans have shown up in force for the voting, and as of Wednesday night, Nebraska ranked second behind Texas A&M. The good news: Nebraska has closed the gap on the Aggies in recent hours. The bad news: voting ends tonight at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Here are the totals as of 7 p.m. ET Wednesday:

Total Votes -- 700,063

Top 10

Texas A&M (151,472)

Nebraska (146,266)

Washington State (52,171)

Clemson (27,384)

West Virginia (23,808)

Arkansas (22,595)

NC State (18,715)

Virginia Tech (14,868)

Iowa (13,417)

South Carolina (13,303)

It's going to come down to Texas A&M or Nebraska to have "College GameDay" film an on-campus commercial.

You can still vote here. Will fellow Big Ten fans support Nebraska? Remember, Texas A&M is in the SEC now. I know how Big Ten fans feel about losing to the SEC.

The results will be revealed Friday afternoon. Stay tuned.
