Former Nebraska Cornhuskers running back Greg Bell has been blocked from transferring to the Oregon State Beavers. The Beavers are the only school is barred from transferring to.

According to Nebraska, he cannot transfer to any Big Ten School. That is typical, as is the team’s decision to block him from any school on their future non-conference schedule over the next three seasons.

In 2018, those non-conference games are Akron, Colorado, Troy, and Bethune-Cookman. Next season, their non-conference schedule includes South Alabama, Colorado, and Northern Illinois.

The 2020 non-conference schedule includes Central Michigan, South Dakota State, and Cincinnati.

Nowhere on that list is Oregon State. According to, the Cornhuskers do not play the Beavers through the 2025 season.

Yet, here is the interesting tie-in with Oregon State. Since Scott Frost took over as the Cornhuskers head coach, three of the 15 players have announced they would transfer to become Beavers.

Quarterback Tristan Gebbia, wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey, and linebacker Avery Roberts are those players.

Trent Bray is also a former Cornhuskers assistant, who was hired by Jonathan Smith as the team’s linebackers coach. In addition, Mike Riley, the former Cornhuskers head coach, who was fired last November as the team’s head coach, is an assistant coach under Smith.

Bell made his intentions known that he would transfer from Nebraska on Saturday. He also did not travel to Madison, Wisconsin with the team to face the Wisconsin Badgers.

He began the season as the starting running back before losing the role.
