Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delaney Set to Visit Thursday
One of the most powerful people in college football is taking a look at the Nittany Lions this Thursday.
Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is celebrating his 25th year as commissioner of the Big Ten Conference by traveling to each of the 12 conference institutions in the month of August to visit coaches, student-athletes, and administrators.
The 2013 campaign will feature the third annual Big Ten Football Championship Game at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium on December 7, with the winner earning the chance to play in one of two postseason games at historic Rose Bowl Stadium – the 100th Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 2014, or the BCS National Championship Game on January 6, 2014.
Penn State is not eligible for postseason play. The Nittany Lions are currently serving a four year bowl ban.
Commissioner Delany departed from Chicago on Monday, August 5. He will stop at Penn State this Thursday during the Nittany Lions’ media day after spending August 7 visiting Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
