The Big Ten Conference has decided to remove former Penn State coach Joe Paterno's name from its championship trophy, which originally had been named for both Paterno and Amos Alonzo Stagg.
"We believe that it would be inappropriate to keep Joe Paterno's name on the trophy at this time," Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said in a statement.
"The trophy and its namesake are intended to be celebratory and aspirational, not controversial. We believe that it's important to keep the focus on the players and the teams that will be competing in the inaugural championship game."
The trophy will now be called the Stagg Championship Trophy.
Paterno was fired Wednesday in the wake of the ongoing Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Badger kick set
Penn State's game Nov. 26 at Wisconsin for the Leaders Division championship will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and air on ABC or ESPN.
Even if PSU loses this week at Ohio State, it can still win the division by beating the Badgers.
No Penn State players will be available to the media this week. The school usually makes 8-10 players available on teleconferences and two more on Tuesday following the head coach's news conference.
