Big Ten football championship set for Indianapolis


Big Ten president and chancellors have voted to keep the conference football championship game in Indianapolis through at least 2015. The inaugural game will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium this fall. Commissioner Jim Delany says weather was a factor in keeping the game in Indianapolis rather than rotating with an outdoor venue like Soldier Field. Chicago will rotate conference basketball tournaments with Indianapolis beginning next season. Indianapolis will get them in 2012, 2014 and 2016. Chicago’s United Center will host the men’s championships in 2013 and 2015, with the women in suburban Hoffman Estates those years. – AP
