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.

* Todd McNair, a Temple product and former Southern Cal running backs coach, is suing the NCAA, claiming the organization caused him to lose his job and destroyed his career, according to a report on FoxSports.com. McNair was hit with a "show-cause'' order by the NCAA last summer after an investigation determined he knew or should have known about the benefits provided to former star running back Reggie Bush, who allegedly accepted $300,000 in gifts while at USC. The NCAA also ruled McNair had "provided false and misleading information to the enforcement staff'' and "violated NCAA legislation by signing a document certifying that he had no knowledge of NCAA violations.''
