Legendary coach Tom Osborne's TeamMates program is expanding. 

The mentoring program already has chapters in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Wyoming and soon it will have one in South Dakota. 

On Aug. 1, the program began its back to school challenge to try to get more mentors involved. Osborne says more mentors are always needed. 

"I think that somebody cares about you unconditionally, someone that's in your corner as an advocate is very important," he said. "And everyone in Teammates is there because they want a mentor."
