FILE - This Nov. 1, 2008, file photo shows Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, left, greeting Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini, right, following their NCAA college football game in Norman, Okla. Oklahoma won the game 62-28. Stoops and Pelini were childhood friends and coaching colleagues before they were presiding over opposite sides of one of college football's storied rivalries. But after Stoops directs No. 10 Oklahoma against Pelini and No. 13 Nebraska in one last meeting in the Big 12 championship on Saturday, they'll head in opposite directions again as the Cornhuskers head to the Big Ten.(AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki, File)
