Delany: National title game likely to be bid on

Posted-May 16th, 2012 2:31 pm.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Big Ten administrators could see a national championship game being played in cities that aren't necessarily traditional hosts.

Big Ten officials came out this week in favor of having bowl games host an expected four-team playoff, preferring to keep the Rose Bowl as its postseason tradition. Yet they also said they can envision the title game played elsewhere.

Commissioner Jim Delany says he thinks the championship game "in any scenario is going to be independently bid, not part of the bowl situation."

The playoff system could debut as early as the 2014 season, replacing a current No.1 vs. No. 2 BCS championship matchup that has rotated among the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose Bowl sites.
