MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Purdue’s 20-point loss at Penn State earlier this week was so ugly it prompted coach Matt Painter to describe his team’s attitude after winning the first two Big Ten games as “fat and sassy.”
CHICAGO (AP) — Big Ten football teams will begin playing nine conference games instead of eight in the 2017 season.
The conference announced the change Thursday and it came as no surprise. When the league expanded to 12 teams by adding Nebraska and split into two divisions this year, Commissioner Jim Delany said a nine-game conference schedule was being strongly considered.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — John Madden stood by his equipment area in the Minnesota Wild dressing room, proudly pondering the possibility of his 11-year-old son someday suiting up for a big-time college hockey team as his dad once did for Michigan.
Madden hoped aloud, however, for one major difference: the experience of playing in the Big Ten.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Big Ten has chosen Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis as the site for the first Big Ten football championship game in 2011.
John Dedman, spokesman for the Indiana Sports Corp., said the Big Ten approached Indianapolis to host the event, and there was no formal bidding process.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska isn’t waiting until next year to get involved in the Big Ten.
Athletic director Tom Osborne will be at the league’s preseason meetings in Chicago early next month. Associate athletic director Marc Boehm says the former football coach will be able to provide input, but won’t have a vote along with the other athletic directors until July 1, 2011.

He’s seen this all before.
“I’ve had a lot of experience with expansion outside of the Big Ten,” he said.
