Big 12 football going off campus
The announcement that Kansas State and Iowa State will play in Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium in 2009 and 2010 means that every Big 12 school except Nebraska has committed to playing a neutral-site game.
Not so long ago, OU-Texas at the Cotton Bowl was it for Big 12 neutral-site games. Now look what’s happened.
* Kansas and Missouri play in Kansas City this year for the second straight season.
* Colorado and Colorado State play in Denver next Sunday for the ninth time in the last 11 seasons.
* Texas A&M has signed a contract with Arkansas to play in Arlington, Texas, for 10 years starting in 2009.
* Oklahoma State and Texas Tech have agreed to play neutral-site games but still are negotiating whether they will occur in Dallas’ Cotton Bowl or Arlington’s new Dallas Cowboys stadium.
* Baylor is scheduled to play Notre Dame in New Orleans in 2012; the game originally was scheduled for Arlington, but Big 12 television contracts forbade NBC, which owned the rights because it’s Notre Dame’s home game, from televising a Big 12 team inside Big 12 territory.
