Details of Big Ten Football Championship and the Ticket Luck value
College football is at its most intense in the Big Ten. Since it’s all the top teams that compete in the Big Ten Football Championship, the thrill is even higher. Big Ten Football Championship tickets have always been popular among sports fans and they would go to any lengths to get the tickets and be a part of the football action first-hand. Especially for the final game, the match between two top teams, demand for the tickets is at its highest.
The game started in 2011 and since then it is held every year in December, bringing fans loads of fun. Big Ten Conference thought of deciding the conference’s season champion in a different way and hence it came up with the Big Ten Football Championship. Of the two teams, one comes from the conference’s Legends division and the other comes from the Leaders division.
Initially, there was much debate as to how can the 12 teams be divided in the best possible manner. The factors considered were geographical locations, competitive balance and rivalries. Finally, it was decided to call the two divisions Legends and Leaders. The selection criteria is based on a team’s overall performance and its record in the conference. Teams that do not make it to the postseason bowl game are not qualified to take part in the Big Ten Football Championship game.
Winner of the game earns a berth in the Rose Bowl and then the winning team goes on to play at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California. Rose Bowl game is usually held on New Year’s Day. If a team finishes at one of the top two places of the Bowl Championship Series then the arrangement is a little different; the winning team then goes on to compete in the BCS National Championship Game. The game is sponsored by Dr. Pepper, is played in the Prime Time and is broadcasted live on Fox Sports. Nothing can match the experience of watching the game live where one can actually feel the heat of the game unlike any feeling which can come from watching it on a TV screen.
