   NEW YORK (AP) -- The Big Ten and the Pinstripe Bowl have agreed to an 8-year deal that the conference hopes will help claim New York as its territory.
 
   Commissioner Jim Delany is at Yankee Stadium for the announcement of the deal with the three-year-old bowl game that will begin in 2014. He appeared at a news conference with Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner and team president Randy Levine.
 
   The Big Ten will take the Big 12's place in the game. It was a natural addition to the Big Ten's bowl lineup after the league invited Rutgers, located in nearby Piscataway, N.J., and Maryland. Those schools will join the Big Ten in 2014.
 
   The Pinstripe Bowl has been matching the Big East against the Big 12 since it started in 2010.
