Iowa, Nebraska to discuss trophy game
By Adam Rittenberg
A new trophy game will be added to the Big Ten slate this season.
Not surprisingly, Iowa and Nebraska plan to capitalize on their new annual series, which will be played on Black Friday the next two years.
Athletic directors Gary Barta (Iowa) and Tom Osborne (Nebraska), along with other officials from both schools, will reveal details of a new trophy game Friday morning during a breakfast event with reporters in Chicago.
I just received an invitation to the event. Not sure if this is a clue about the trophy, but the invitation includes a definition for the word hero: "A person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for their brave deeds and noble qualities."
Any final suggestions for the Iowa-Nebraska trophy?
