Pizza Bowl still working on tie-in with Big 10
George Perles (PER'-less) said Wednesday he expects to know by next week if the former Motor City Bowl will reach an agreement with a Big Ten or Big East team to play a Mid-American Conference school.
Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman said the conference is still in talks with bowl officials in Detroit.
The bowl changed its name after Detroit-based Little Caesars stepped in as sponsor. The game is played at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions.
