A team spokesman said the Packers have made preliminary contact with Big Ten officials to request information on hosting a new conference championship game, which will become possible after Nebraska leaves the Big 12 for the Big Ten in 2011.

Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy indicated the team's interest in hosting the Big Ten title game in an interview with ESPN.com on Thursday.

Facing a recent dip in locally generated revenue, the Packers are looking for more ways to grow business. The team also may expand Lambeau Field's capacity.
