The Nebraska-Texas football rivalry was an American college football rivalry between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Texas Longhorns. The rivalry dissolved when Nebraska left the Big 12 Conference for the Big Ten Conference. Due to Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, and Texas A&M leaving the conference, the Big 12 Championship Game dissolved due to a lack of teams in the conference. The last ever Big 12 Championship game was played between Nebraska and Oklahoma in 2010. The rivalry is known for the tension between the two programs. Almost every game between the two could have gone either way, with Texas stealing many of the victories in heartbreaking fashion. In the 1996 Big 12 Championship game, Nebraska had a four-point lead over Texas until Wane McGarity scored a touchdown for Texas, followed by a late touchdown by Priest Holmes to allow Texas to win, 37-27.
The 2009 Big 12 Championship Game between Texas and Nebraska ended controversially as the officiating crew added one second to the clock, allowing Texas to score the winning field goal over Nebraska.
Although most Nebraska fans disagreed with the call, former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne stated that Texas "won the game fair and square", and that he was at the game in the press box and felt confused when it first had happened.

Which, can we even call it a rivalry? Texas went 9-1 against Nebraska in Big 12 play. The only team in the Big 12 that Nebraska has that high of a win percentage against is Baylor, and Nebraskans sure as hell don't consider that a rivalry.
What has this season been like, knowing you won't be playing any of these Big 12 rivals again anytime soon?
