Big Ten Pushes Into N.Y. Market With Eight-Year Deal To Play In Pinstripe Bowl
Published June 4, 2013
GOOD RIDDANCE: ESPN.com's David Ubben wrote observers would be "hard pressed to find many in Big 12 country shedding a tear" about the conference no longer playing in the Pinstripe Bowl. The difficulty for teams and media to reach practice sites during bowl week "drew complaints, and the open-air press box in a frigid New York December isn't exactly the product of well thought-out genius." The process of trekking to N.Y. the week of New Year's Eve "isn't exactly cheap for teams or fans, either." Having a bowl game in Yankee Stadium and "giving fans a reason to spend New Year's Eve in New York City sounded cool in theory." The "logistical issues in making it happen, though, produced quite a few headaches" (ESPN.com, 6/3).
