Before the 2013-14 season, Northwestern told the basketball team expected to debut an alternate uniform during Big Ten play.

Bo Pelini has surprised us a couple of times in the last year. It all started with Nebraska’s Harlem Shake video, and then there was the cell phone prank he played on his team. Neither compares to what the coach did during Monday night’s BCS title game. It’s true, Pelini tweeted at his popular faux Twitter account (@FauxPelini), asking for his faux cat back, the one featured in the account’s avatar.

Yarina: What a wild opening week of Big Ten hoops

Well, that was an interesting and entertaining opening week of conference play, wasn’t it? Put it this way: If the rest of the regular season is anything like the first week, we are all in store for a fun ride to the Big Ten tourney and NCAA tourney. There was a little bit of everything this past week.

NU's Liberman first to wear yarmulke in Big Ten game

Northwestern freshman Aaron Liberman received his first action in a Big Ten game in Sunday’s 74-51 defeat at Michigan.

Brent's Take: Wisconsin bowl struggles continue

Here’s a stat that’s hard to believe: Wisconsin’s 34-24 loss to South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl marks the program’s sixth defeat in its last seven bowl games. The lone win during the streak was a 20-14 win over Miami in the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl. See my Capital One Bowl honors and grades in this post.
