It’s Social Media Night for Wednesday’s No. 17 Wisconsin-Northwestern game at Welsh-Ryan Arena. In honor of the night, the game ball will include Northwestern’s hash tag of choice, #B1GCATS, the scoreboard will read “#B1GCATS” and “#BADGERS,” and each Wildcat will have his personal Twitter account on the back of his shooting shirt.

Also, in the spirit of social media, Northwestern invited proud alum and ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell to the festivities. Rovell, according to the school, will take part in the pregame “Standing Out in the Digital Crowd” discussion.

There are several other in-game social media promotions, all of which you can read about here.
