Photos: Look at what NIU sent to opponents' media

The words “Heisman” and “Candidate” are nowhere to be found, but Northern Illinois sure seems to be promoting dual-threat quarterback Jordan Lynch as such. In fact, the school recently sent out “Jordan Lynch for 6” lunch bags to opposing media that includes everything one wants to know about the QB. Why do we care about this? Because Northern Illinois plays two Big Ten teams this year: Iowa (Aug. 31) and Purdue (Sept. 28). Mike Carmin, of the Lafayette Journal and Courier, tweeted a couple pictures of said lunch bag. Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch arrived today. #Purdue plays NIU 9/28

B1G Player Rankings: No. 24, James White

We’re 24 days from the 2013 football season kicking off. Indiana (Indiana State) and Minnesota (UNLV) get things started for the Big Ten on Thursday, Aug. 29 on BTN/BTN2Go. To help count down the days to kickoff, BTN.com is ranking the top 25 players. Join us as we count it down, from 25-1, every day. No. 24: James White, RB, Wisconsin.

White’s surplus of scores go unnoticed because his trips to the end

Twitter: 2013 Big Ten football bold predictions

It’s always fun to offer bold predictions before football season kicks off. In the end, more times than not, the practice makes you look silly. Like, two years ago when I pegged Illinois’ Nathan Scheelhaase to be in the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year race. Whatever, it’s still entertaining. That being the case, I asked my Twitter followers for their 2013 bold predictions, and there were some bold ones. First impression: Either a lot of Indiana fans replied to this tweet, or people really like the Hoosiers as a surprise, improved team. THE BOLDEST @BTNBrentYarina @BigTenNetwork OSU goes

Video: 'Ahhhhh!' Watch this Ryan Kerrigan ad

Ever wonder what Purdue product Ryan Kerrigan is doing when he isn’t terrorizing NFL quarterbacks? We now know the answer–at least for part of his free time. The Washington Redskins linebacker dresses up as the sun, dances around, peers into random homes, and yells “Ahhhhhhhh!” Don’t worry, it’s all for a commercial. A terrifically hilarious commercial, that is. Kerrigan is an absolute riot in the above ad for Thompson Creek Window Company. The former Purdue defensive end also did this commercial for the company last year. Prediction: Kerrigan is about to have a lot of people yelling “Ahhhhh!” when they

Clothes Call: You see this Ohio State facemask?

There are some ridiculous facemasks out there. Like this one, this one and this one. Ari Wasserman, of the Buckeye Sports Bulletin, was at Ohio State’s facility for an instructional clinic Thursday, when he noticed a unique Ohio State-themed facemask.

Photos: Illinois turns on new video displays

Illinois turned on its new video displays Friday for the first time at Memorial Stadium, and they all were met with rave reviews. The main scoreboard, located in the south end zone, is more than four times larger than the previous one (3,456 square feet vs. 858 square feet) and ranks in the top 25 among NCAA video displays. The frame around the video board and the sound system aren’t completely finished, however the school says everything will be ready in time for the season opener Aug. 31 vs. Southern Illinois.
