Video: Ron Kellogg III goes undercover on campus

Here’s something awesome: Nebraska had Ron Kellogg III go undercover on campus to ask fans about last week’s thrilling game, his Hail Mary, the team’s quarterback situation and this week’s game at Michigan. To no surprise, the video didn’t disappoint. It was hilarious, actually. Watch it in this post. Nice week, Nebraska! [ MORE: Get all of our favorite reaction to the Hail Mary ] Here are a few of my favorite interactions: Kellogg is talking to a man about his weight, and at the end the man says: It (doesn’t) matter what religion you are, once in a while,

Photo: Purdue to wear American flag helmet Saturday

It will be two alternate helmets in as many weeks for Purdue football. One week after debuting its highly anticipated black matte alternate, Purdue will go with a patriotic version of its primary lid Saturday vs. Iowa for Military Appreciation Day. It’s a nice touch. No, it isn’t as loud or as Red, White and Blue as Northwestern’s new Under Armour alternate, which was released Monday and will be worn Nov. 16 vs. Michigan, but it’s a nice way to remember those who have served days before Veterans Day.

Video: Packers break out Gordon-White TD dance

Last week, the Wisconsin football team posted a YouTube video that showed most of Madison, Wis., doing Melvin Gordon and James White’s touchdown dance. It was fantastic, and you can watch it again in this post. Well, in case you missed it, they’re also doing the dance in Green Bay. Packers running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks busted out Gordon and White’s celebratory moves in Monday Night’s loss to Chicago.

Photo: See Northwestern's new patriotic uniform

Northwestern will look a lot different when it plays Michigan on Nov. 16. That’s because the Wildcats will be ditching their familiar purple, white and black for a patriotic design. The look, designed by Under Armour, features a monochromatic gray uniform, with plenty of Red, White and Blue accents. It’s on the NU logos, shoulders, backside of the pants, cleats, gloves and socks. There’s even a red pattern that resembles blood. The helmet is patriotic, too. Also, as we’ve seen the service academies do in the past, the player nameplates will feature one of the following words: Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country

Video: Watch Sam Thompson's inbound alley-oop

Attention, Ohio State opponents: Make sure to account for Sam Thompson on each and every inbound pass under the Ohio State basket. We’ve said it so many times during Thompson’s career, but the high-flying junior soared for another one of his trademark inbound alley-oops in Sunday’s exhibition game vs. Walsh. And, just like the handful or so before it, this one was pretty.

Did that really happen? Relive Hail Mary reaction

Yes, Nebraska fans, Saturday night’s last-second Hail Mary was real. There’s no need to check your eyes, that was third-string quarterback Ron Kellogg III throwing a 57-yard bomb to redshirt freshman Jordan Westerkamp, he of zero career touchdowns. Just as Bo Pelini and Tim Beck drew it up, right? Relive all the reaction to the memorable finish in this post.

Caption this: Brady Hoke & Mark Dantonio

Other than Michigan-Ohio State, there may not be a better Big Ten rivalry than Michigan-Michigan State. The two teams don’t like each other at all, and the hatred is in full force as the Spartans and Wolverines are battling for the Legends Division crown. Prior to the game, Brady Hoke and Mark Dantonio exchanged pleasantries, and we asked for your captions for the photo. @BTNBrentYarina Hoke: "You mind if we rush for ONE yard in 1st half?" Dantonio: "Ha" — Nick Knieling (@NKnieling) November 2, 2013 @BTNBrentYarina @BigTenNetwork Hoke: "Good luck today, Coach." Dantonio: "Ain't nobody got time for that."

Clothes Call: Check out these Big Ten hoops changes

A new basketball season is upon us. Before the ball tips early next month, let’s take a look at some of the new uniform and court designs we’ll see around the Big Ten this season. A little warning, there aren’t nearly as many changes this year as there were last, and that goes for both the uniforms and the courts. Some good news: After talking to team representatives, it seems like we won’t see the adidas “Bleed Out” or Nike “Hyper Elite Road” uniforms that debuted last season. That doesn’t mean the companies won’t come out with some other new
