INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is hoping Saturday's inaugural title game between No. 11 Michigan State and No. 15 Wisconsin will keep the spotlight on football.
After a year of controversy and scandal, the Big Ten wouldn't mind polishing its image a bit.
The NCAA scandal at Ohio State still hasn't been resolved. New accusations continue to emerge from Penn State in the alleged child-sex abuse case against former coach Jerry Sandusky. Fans continue to question why league officials named their two divisions Legends and Leaders, and even ticket sales for the championship game are being questioned.
Delany thinks the rematch of October's exciting contest between the Spartans and Badgers may be just the showcase the Big Ten needs.
