Former Ohio State star and current Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a scary back injury last week that required spinal surgery. His team made sure to include him in the AFC North clinching locker room celebration, though, and you can watch the FaceTime inside.
Any kind of race, be it a baby/toddler race or a mascot race, is quality entertainment at a sporting event. One way to make said races even better is to put the participants in Star Wars costumes.
Everyone’s a fan of Iowa’s “First Quarter Wave.” New Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck may be near the top of the list. He made this much clear a few days before his Gophers traveled to play the Hawkeyes in the latest battle for the Floyd of Rosedale. Saturday night, Fleck had his entire team on the field to participate in the new Iowa tradition that features the entire stadium waving to the young patients at the UI Children’s Hospital watching from across the street. Watch the scene in the tweet below. This so amazing. Fans and teams waving to kids in
If Goldy loves one thing, other than Minnesota athletics, it's Halloween. Few mascots have more fun celebrating the holiday than the Minnesota mascot.
In its first home game since Joe Tiller’s death, the Purdue football team will have several tributes to the legendary coach, 74, who died last weekend, when it hosts Minnesota on Saturday.

Michigan unveiled the new Jordan Brand design Monday afternoon. The Wolverines and Gators, who will also wear an alternate uniform, face off in the AdvoCare Classic on Satuday at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. See both teams’
Say what you will about Oregon’s array of football uniforms. There’s too many to keep straight. They’re obnoxious. They’re sweet. The reactions to the Ducks’ latest alternate uniform, to be worn in Week 2 vs. Nebraska, shouldn’t be nearly as polarizing. That’s because three young cancer survivors from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital helped design the #StompOutCancer threads. See pictures of the new design below and meet the three cancer survivors at the bottom of the post. More than a game when @OregonFootball takes on Nebraska in Week 2.

Tom Brady knows how to make a difference, on and off the field. The former Michigan star and lone five-time winning Super Bowl quarterback showed it again following a recent training camp practice.
