The athletic directors of the eight continuing and two new Big 12 Conference member institutions concluded two days of meetings today in New York City. The annual meeting was held in conjunction with this evening's National Football Foundation Hall of Fame induction banquet.
The ADs discussed football scheduling, the Bowl Championship Series, future television options, and governance matters, while also reaffirming the Big 12's commitment to hosting its men's basketball championship in Kansas City.
"Kansas City has a rich college basketball history," commented Big 12 Conference athletics director chairman and Iowa State University athletics director Jamie Pollard," and remains an attractive destination for our men's championship. It is an integral part of the Big 12 footprint and staging our championship at Sprint Center reinforces the strong presence of the Conference in the greater Kansas City area."
Last month, the Big 12 announced it would host its 2013 and 2014 women's soccer championships at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. The Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship is scheduled for Kansas City, Mo. through 2014.
