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: Purdue's new black alternate helmet

Purdue is going with a Black Out for today’s game vs. No. 4 Ohio State on BTN/BTN2Go. And, yes, that includes a new black matte alternate helmet. The Boilermakers went with a slow reveal of the helmet, decorated with train tracks down the middle, and didn’t debut it until they came out of the tunnel before kickoff. They warmed up in their primary lid. VIDEO: Thumbs up or thumbs down to @BoilerFootball's new black alternate helmet?

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

Video: Is Michigan rivalry personal to Mark Dantonio?

Fitz Toussaint drew plenty of attention for his “little brother” jab at Michigan State following Tuesday’s practice. Toussaint said, “We labeled them as a little brother,” and that the rivalry is “personal.” Read more on Toussaint’s comments. On Wednesday night’s #BTNLive, Dave Revsine mentioned Toussaint’s words to Mark Dantonio and asked if he took the rivalry personal. Watch the full interview above and his classic response below. Check out this back-and-forth: Revsine: “Is it personal to you?” Dantonio: “What do you think?” Revsine: “You tell me, coach.” Dantonio: “Yeah, what do you think? I think I’m on record on how

Big Ten beat writers' preseason All-Big Ten teams, honors

Which Big Ten players will earn All-Big Ten honors in 2013-14? Who will take home the conference’s individual awards? BTN.com recently polled one beat writer from every Big Ten team to seek out the answers. See their 2013-14 All-Big Ten Teams and superlative winners in this post. Here’s how this worked: Players were awarded three points for first-team distinction, two for second-team, and one for third-team. The numbers were added up, and the top 5 vote-getters, regardless of position, made first team, the next five second team, the next five third team. B1G MEDIA FIRST TEAM: Aaron Craft, Ohio State

Yarina: My All-Big Ten hoops Underrated Team

The exhibition basketball season is upon us (view our streaming schedule). Soon enough, the games will start to count. With that in mind, I thought I’d offer up my All-Big Ten Underrated Team. See my five guys in this post. Who did I miss? Tweet it my way, @BTNBrentYarina. [ MORE: Don’t forget about these guys in 2013-14 ] G: Shannon Scott, Jr., Ohio State. Aaron Craft gets all of the hype and pub, and rightly so. But his fellow guard is pretty good, too. Scott burst onto the scene last year, using his speed and quickness to develop into

They're back! Don't forget about these Big Ten players

Everyone knows about the talent the Big Ten returns to the hardwood this winter. You know, the Adreian Paynes, the Gary Harrises and the Aaron Crafts of the world. Not everyone, perhaps, is aware of the starpower the conference also welcomes back from season-ending injuries. Northwestern’s Drew Crawford (labrum), Penn State’s Tim Frazier (Achilles) and Wisconsin’s Josh Gasser (knee), to name a few, combined to play 14 games early last season. Gasser, actually, didn’t play a single game. Well, all three are ready to make up for lost time. Which one will have the best season? And which one will

It’s all about promoting breast cancer awareness. The pink didn’t stop there, though. Prior to kickoff, pink fireworks were set off from Ohio Stadium.

Braxton Miller on last year's 'crazy' 1-yard TD at PSU

It’s rare for a one-yard run to drop jaws, but that’s just what Braxton Miller did on his short highlight-reel scoring run last season at Penn State. The run was so great, in fact, the Ohio State quarterback picked it as his “Signature Moment.” And to think it almost didn’t happen. The play was designed to go to running back Carlos Hyde, but he was taken out by Penn State defenders. That’s when Miller did what he does best and decided to improvise. Lucky us! Watch our short feature on the run in the video above. Here’s what Miller said
