Indiana says UK declined offer to resume series

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Negotiations to keep the Kentucky-Indiana series going have broken down for the second time.

Indiana officials announced May 3 that they could not reach a deal to extend the contract, which expired after last season.

According to a letter between the school's two athletic directors obtained Wednesday, negotiations resumed on May 10 and didn't end until Kentucky's DeWayne Peevy contacted Indiana officials May 24 to reject the offer.

Indiana athletic director Fred Glass wrote that he would agree to play games in 2012 and 2013 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis if the next two games were played on campus. Indiana also offered to share a $100,000 buyout to move a conflicting game.

The letter says Kentucky declined.
