Lucas Oil Stadium to Host Big Ten Championship Game



The Big Ten announced today that the first Big Ten Championship game will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

"We are excited to work with Indiana Sports Corp. and Lucas Oil Stadium to finalize an agreement to hold the inaugural Big Ten football championship game in the city of Indianapolis," Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said in a statement. "We felt at this time it was important to identify a site for the first championship game and then spend more time with other cities and venues with respect to both our basketball tournaments and the football championship games in the future."

Having been to Indianapolis a few times for conferences, I think this is a fabulous choice. The stadium is located right in downtown Indianapolis with shopping, hotels, bars, and restaurants all over the place. Much of it, like the stadium, is indoors making it convenient to experience even when the weather is not cooperating.

I also like how the Big Ten is doing a one year deal now and taking their time to explore their options and work out a long term deal somewhere else.
