While I'd guess Nebraska has small interest, they would be an interesting one to watch. It wouldn't surprise me if they at least asked the question. They plan on building a 1,500 seat ice rink near campus as part of a gift they received from an alumni. Their non-varsity club team will play there. So too small for a D1 rink, but maybe at least enough for them to bother to ask.
Nebraska is also building a new basketball stadium. I have read they it may be able to accomodate ice, but have never really seen much detail around that.
None of this means they are aggressively pursuing a hockey team, but an on campus ice rink never hurts the hockey culture.
