Hot Dogs, Get Your Hot Dogs!

One of the unique features Indianapolis and Bankers Life Fieldhouse offers as host of the Big Ten Basketball Tournaments is a signature food item.  In past years, BLF, in conjunction with Levy Restaurants, have put together Big Ten school-specific burgers and baked potatoes, but this year the food of choice was the hot dog.

Each Big Ten school is represented by a different style of hot dog.  The concession stands throughout the venue keep track of how many school hot dogs are sold and write the totals on a large scoreboard near the register. 

Halfway through Friday's action, Indiana's "dawg" featuring coleslaw, red pepper relish and fried onions held a commanding lead with 224 sold.  Of course, the fact that the Hoosier Nation contributed to a sold-out BLF today also helped spike the total.  In second today with 115 sold was Michigan State, which offers the "dawq" with pepper jack cheese, jalapeno pickle relish and spicy mustard.
