Feuds are what help make college sports great. They get fans fired up. They create additional interest in already great games.

We’re excited to announce a new way to reserve a ticket for the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship for your team for as little as $10 today. If your team makes it, you are obligated to purchase each face-value priced ticket associated with each of your reservations. But if your team doesn’t make it, you only forfeit your reservation fee.
