The Big Ten Championship is one of the biggest college football games every season, and the winner of the game automatically gets a berth in the Rose Bowl (if not selected for the national championship game). The game was first played in 2011, when the Big Ten expanded with the addition of Nebraska, bringing the total number of teams in the conference to 12. The top team from each of the East and West Divisions play each other in the contest, with the winner of both of the contests thus far being the Wisconsin Badgers. The game has been played at Lucas Oil Stadium, and will continue to be hosted in Indianapolis through at least 2015.

Lucas Oil 100 Level
The sections at midfield (112-114, 139-141) are called Club I, and are the best lower level seats available. Field Sideline and Field End Zone are great seats as well, for an up-close view of the game.
Lucas Oil 200 Level
These sections are directly behind the 100 level, but are much smaller. The sections in the 200 level near midfield are still club sections.
Lucas Oil 300 Level
At midfield, the 300 level is all suites. Along the sidelines, corners and endzones, however, these are small sections of regular seating called Loge Sections.
Lucas Oil 400 Level
Also called loge seating, these are again smaller sections outside of sections 401-403 and 450-453 which are much larger.
Lucas Oil 600 Level
Called the terrace section, this is the upper level of Lucas Oil Stadium. This is the most cost-efficient way to get in to watch a Colts game in person.
