The Big Ten will be rotating championship game sites.

It looks like future Big Ten title games won't always be in Indianapolis.

Since the Big Ten Championship Game's inception in 2011, the contest has always been played inside Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. But it seems that will be changing.

Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren told New Jersey Advanced Media on Thursday that the conference plans to begin rotating the Big Ten Championship sites as early as next season as the Big Ten's contract with Lucas Oil Stadium expires this year.

“We’re going to sit down and figure out the best way to rotate it, probably take out a [request for proposal] for basketball and football,” Warren told “I’m open to any location our fans will travel to and enjoy in our footprint, anywhere from Nebraska to New Jersey.” reports that Warren is open to using New York's Metlife Stadium in New Jersey as a potential future host site.
