Lucas Oil Stadium's field ready for Saturday


Three days away, the field at Lucas Oil Stadium is ready to host the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship Game on Saturday night. The B1G Championship Game logo has been added to midfield, the “B1G” logo to the 25-yard lines, and the school names to the end zones. See a photo, courtesy of @B1GFootball, in this post.

The game pits Legends Division champ Nebraska versus Wisconsin, which finished third in the Leaders Division but advances due to Ohio State and Penn State being on postseason bans.

Like last year, the inaugural event, this year’s game is a rematch of a regular-season matchup. The Huskers rallied past the Badgers, 30-27, in the opening week of Big Ten play at Memorial Stadium.

Wisconsin will be looking to defend last year’s title win over Michigan State.

Did you mean ‘close’ call? staff on 11/28/2012 @ 6:28pm EDT Said:

    Brian, we got a little playful with the tag name. In that section, we mainly track changes to Big Ten uniforms (or “clothes”), but occasionally we drop in posts about other design changes around the conference. Good eyes, though.

Actually, it’s correct. Follow the link.

Nice field and great conditions to play under ( I was at the Ice Bowl Big XII title game vs Oklahoma in Kc and it was terrible) Wish I was there in Indiana. Winner headin to the Rose Bowl. Go Big Red

Looks good in the photo, hopefully there is enough fan support to make the stadium look good too. I suspect a lot of people will be saving their $ for the bowl game. Huskers need to play their game without mistakes. If this happens, Huskers should prevail.
