Quote:..officials from the two schools have decided to move the game away from its alternating home-and-home fixtures for the next two seasons in an "attempt to improve the climate surrounding the game," according to the report.

After a two-season "trial period," the schools will evaluate the behavior of players and fans before renewing the series or scheduling venues, the newspaper reported.

CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati and Xavier University announced today their Crosstown rivalry in men's basketball will continue in 2012, but with some changes, including a new name and venue.

The Skyline Chili Crosstown Classic benefiting the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will provide a new direction for the annual rivalry. The 2012 game date has been set for Dec. 19 at U.S. Bank Arena

The changes will be implemented on a trial basis for up to two years with annual reassessment. Changes to the game include:
•A name change - A new name, Skyline Chili Crosstown Classic, has been selected to emphasize a new direction for the game and its new emphasis on the city and its riverfront. Both institutions are pleased Skyline Chili will continue as the primary sponsor. After the two-year trial period, should the game continue, the new name will remain.

•A new logo incorporating the new name and the new direction.

•A neutral site - the U.S. Bank Arena, located on the city's waterfront.

•The addition of a new beneficiary of the game - The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, located along the riverfront, will receive a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales from the game.
