Video: Wildcats get fancy in uniform feature

Northwestern has no shortage of uniform combinations. Under Armour revamped the team’s look prior to the 2012 season, and last year it introduced an all-white design. There’s countless helmets to go along with the three different jerseys and pants (white, black and purple). Basically, there’s no telling what Northwestern will wear from one Saturday to the next. Players love it. And, most importantly, recruits love it. Based on the Northwestern YouTube video above, we may see some new combinations in 2014. In the video, linebacker Collin Ellis says, “We’ve never done this before,” while wearing a black top and white

Photo: Ex-Terp Torrey Smith is excited for Big Ten

The future is bright for the Big Ten. So bright, in fact, you might need some shades. Former Maryland receiver and current NFL star Torrey Smith is excited about his school’s move, and he posted a photo to Instagram to prove it. The shot features Smith holding his young child, with both wearing Maryland glasses that feature the school logo on the right lens and the B1G logo on the left lens. #ThinkB1G Terp Nation Forever A post shared by Torrey Smith (@torreysmithwr) on Jun 2, 2014 at 11:36am PDT First off, adorable kid, Torrey. Secondly, welcome aboard! ESPN personality

Photos: Spartans show off possible new uniform designs

Last year during its run to the Big Ten and Rose Bowl titles, Michigan State unveiled a few new uniform designs. Like, the all-green look it wore for the Big Ten title game and Rose Bowl Game. Well, if the football models on display at the team’s complex are any indication, the Spartans could have some new designs in 2014. See photos of the uniforms in this post. [ MORE: Facebook.com/SpartanNation: See a gallery of the uniforms ] These are nice. I especially like the all-white uniform. This is a design the Spartans wore prior to their latest Nike remodel

NCAA regional preview: Beat writers' take

The Huskers kick things off for the Big Ten vs. Cal State Fullerton at 1 p.m. ET, while the Hoosiers host Youngstown State at 7 p.m. ET. Before the games begin, BTN.com conducted an email Q&A with a beat writer from each school to preview the action.

Video: Pat Fitzgerald takes pies to the face

Pat Fitzgerald is all for helping out good a cause, so it was no shock to see him taking pies to the face during a recent Pi Beta Phi fundraiser. For just $2, anyone could smash a pie in the football coach’s face, with all proceeds going to children’s literacy. “It’s great on the face,” Fitzgerald said, “I think it’s exfoliating. In the nostrils, is not one that I would recommend. It’s great to help our students.” h/t: @ChrisVannini About Brent Yarina BTN.com senior editor Brent Yarina covers football and men’s basketball for BTN.com. He writes the popular uniform feature

Four Big Ten teams ranked in SN's preseason top 25

Reigning Big Ten and Rose Bowl champ Michigan State comes in at No. 12, while Nebraska (No. 17) and Wisconsin (No. 19) round out the Big Ten contingent. For the curious minds, Oklahoma is the site’s No. 1 team.

Video: Jackson Glines breaks bat on RBI single

Go to an MLB game, and you’re almost guaranteed to see at least one bat break into multiple pieces. A college game? Not so much. It happened, though, in Friday night’s Michigan-Iowa Big Ten tourney game. Making the super-rare event all the more impressive, Jackson Glines got an RBI single to center on the swing. Watch the play and see a picture of the bat in this post.

Video: Jake Yacinich's slide to steal home ... just, wow!

A steal of home is always  exciting. It’s even better when the baserunner makes a ridiculous slide to avoid the tag. We saw that happen in the nightcap of the Big Ten tourney Friday night, when Iowa’s Jake Yacinich was the lead runner on a double steal attempt. Michigan, on what looked like a designed play, threw down to second and had the shortstop cut it off and toss home. The Wolverines had Yacinich dead to rights. That’s when he decided to leave his feet and dive around the tag. I’ve watched this a dozen times, and I still can’t

Video: Tracy Smith gets revenge on Indiana players

The Indiana baseball team has made a habit of standing behind Tracy Smith during each and every one of his recent BTN in-game interviews. The videobombing has been silly and serious, you name it. Well, for Thursday night’s scheduled fifth-inning interview vs. Michigan, Smith decided to take a page out of Blake Griffin’s book. [ MORE: Catch up on all the Big Ten tourney action ] You could say Smith was prepared. He knew his players would be behind him, and he had the cup of water in his hand for a reason. “I was going to ask you guys,”

Photo: Adreian Payne, Nik Stauskas go watch shopping

Times have changed since the old days, but we still seem surprised when rival player fraternize. It happened when Taylor Lewan and Ryan Shazier dined together, when Gary Harris and Glenn Robinson III worked out together, and now there’s another example – easily the most random of the bunch. On Thursday, Adreian Payne posted a picture to Instagram of him and former rival Nik Stauskas shopping for a new watch. The message of the photo read: “Out watch shopping with @nikstauskas11 we aways spending money💰💵💸” [ MORE: Get all of our 2014 NBA Draft coverage ] As I said, random.
