CHICAGO (AP) — Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany does not envision the Rose Bowl moving from its New Year’s Day spot in order to accommodate the College Football Playoff semifinals.

Delany says there might be “some movement from the bowls” but doesn’t see those changes impacting the Rose Bowl.

The College Football Playoff is considering moving future semifinals off New Year’s Eve after ratings for last season’s games dropped in a big way. Playoff head Bill Hancock told reporters two weeks ago at the SEC Media Days that the commissioners who comprise the playoff management committee are open to adjusting future schedules.
