CHICAGO (AP) -- Big Ten officials have rejected on-campus sites
for a potential four-team national college football playoff,
preferring to keep the Rose Bowl and other traditional bowls venues

Athletic directors meeting as part of the annual spring Big Ten
Joint Group on Tuesday, said many playoff details remain unsettled.

"There was a pretty strong consensus among the ADs that we'd
like to have the playoff within the bowl system," Nebraska
athletic director Tom Osborne said. "If you took them out of the
playoff, it would pretty much destroy the bowl system."

A four-team Football Bowl Championship system is set to debut in
the 2014 season, replacing a current No.1 vs. No. 2 BCS
championship game that has rotated among the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose Bowl sites.
