C. are expected to be named as two of the locations, with the Chicago game being played at Wrigley Field, according to former ESPN college football insider Brett McMurphy.
The game at Wrigley Field would pit a Big Ten team against an ACC team, per the report. A third location was not as clear, with several sites vying for a potential game.
