Here Come More Greatest Games

Here Come More Greatest Games

We get a lot of feedback on our show “The Big Ten’s Greatest Games” and the fans love it. And we do, too. It’s just fun to see our old Big Ten heroes play in older stadiums in old uniforms. It brings back a lot of memories for Big Ten fans everywhere. And now we’re happy to tell you we have the list of games for the upcoming season.

Here’s the list. We’ll add broadcast dates and times later, although you can always check our BTN TV schedule for the latest listings. We’ll also spotlight each game on the day the show debuts, possibly with a video clip or two, too.
