The Big Ten Conference has selected Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to be the site of its football championship game through 2015.

Indianapolis was selected over Chicago’s Soldier Field due to the fact the conference wanted the game indoors.

The conference had already selected Indy as the host city to its inaugural championship game to be played on December 3, 2011.

The Big Ten also announced that it would be rotating the men’s and women’s basketball tournament between Chicago and Indianapolis in 2013.

The men’s tournament will be played at the United Center in 2013 and 2015. The women’s tournament will be played at the Sears Centre in suburban Hoffman Estates, Illinois, the same year. Conseco Fieldhouse will play host to both tournaments in 2014 and 2016.

Crew loses in U.S. Open Cup Final, 2-1 to Sigi Schmid & Seattle Sounders


Sanna Nyassi Seattle Sounders (MLS)

Sanna Nyassi scored two goals as the Seattle Sounders FC defended their Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title with a 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew Tuesday before a crowd of 31,311 at Qwest Field in Seattle, Washington. That is the largest crowd for a final in the tournament’s history.

Tuesday’s attendance smashed the previous finals record involving an MLS team, set in 2000 when Chicago beat the Miami Fusion in front of 19, 164 fans at Soldier Field. The previous attendance mark for the USOC final was set back in 1929, when 21,583 fans attended the final played at Dexter Park in Brooklyn, New York.

The Sounders are coached by former Crew coach, Sigi Schmid.

The Sounders became the first MLS team to win two straight Open Cup titles, and the first team to win consecutive crowns since the New York Pancyprian Freedoms won in 1982-83.

Columbus opened the scoring with a goal from Kevin Burns, on a classy finish in the 24th minute.

Nyassi was the hero of the game, scoring in the 38th and 66th minute to help Seattle rally to the win.

Andy Gruenebaum started in goal for the Crew as he always does in non-MLS games.

The Crew was playing in its third Open Cup Final, joining the 2002 squad that defeated L.A. to win the tournament and the 1998 team that lost to Chicago in overtime.

NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Bears beat Packers 20-17 to stay undefeated

The much-improved Jay Cutler threw for 221 yards, linebacker Brian Urlacher forced a key Green Bay fumble and Chicago became opportunistic by taking advantage of a team record-tying 17 penalties by the Packers, in a 20-17 win Monday night at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Green Bay wide receiver James Jones lost a fumble after being hit by Brian Urlacher at the Packers 46-yard line with just 2:18 left in the 4th quarter. A few plays later, Morgan Burnett was called for pass interference on Earl Bennett, which set up the winning 19-yard field goal by Robbie Gould with 4 seconds left.

The Bears, one of the most disappointing teams in 2009, are 3-0 and sitting by themselves in first place in the NFC North Division. The Packers fall from the unbeaten ranks and are 2-1.
