They’re both also on the same page in terms of reigniting the rivalry between Michigan and Notre Dame, with the goal of it starting the 2018 or 2019 season. “I’ve been on board since the inception,” Harbaugh said at the recent Sound Mind Sound Body camp at Wayne State in Detroit. “It’s something that’s been working on for many months, going on seven, eight, nine months now. There are still some T’s to
Few public universities in the United States have the historic pedigree of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The institution, which traces its lineage back to its original charter in 1766, is celebrating its 250th “birthday” this year, making it slightly older than the U.S. itself. Still, it’s looking good for its age. The university counts many modern trailblazers among its alumni, including novelist Junot Diaz, civil rights leader Paul Robeson, female soccer star Carli Lloyd and economist Milton Friedman. And Rutgers alumni, faculty and students continue to make a mark on this country and the world, as demonstrated
Joe, love the yearbook quote. Thanks for your loyalty & support! Best of luck at VCU this fall! pic.twitter.com/Gms2jWrcZX — Kirk Cousins (@KirkCousins8) June 10, 2016 Kirk Cousins’ “You like that?!” quote will stand the test of time. [ MORE: Like this post?

That’s because Joseph Langley, who is Virginia Commonwealth-bound, used the phrase Cousins shouted after orchestrating Washington’s biggest comeback in franchise history last season as his senior quote. Cousins got wind of the quote, and, to no surprise, he loved
Raekwon McMillan is a big-time tackler. Sunday, at the Ohio State Football Women's Clinic, the Ohio State star and reigning first-team All-Big Ten linebacker (media) showed he's a good sport about being on the opposite end of a tackle.
The Big Ten Conference made quite a mark on the Peace Corps last year, as evidenced by the organization’s tally of volunteers by alma mater in 2015. Eight of the top 25 large universities (those with more than 15,000 undergraduates) were from the B1G, and the conference accounted for half of the top 10. Moreover, the University of Michigan was second on the list of volunteer-producing graduate schools. Wisconsin and Michigan are second- and fourth-place, respectively, on the list of all-time undergraduate volunteers (since 1961). Here’s a look at where Big Ten universities placed in 2015: 2.

Bold. Brilliant. Benevolent. Or, in a word, Buckeyes. Across the country, people often think “sports powerhouse” when they think of The Ohio State University. And make no mistake: The school’s earned that reputation by winning the first-ever playoff for the college football national championship last year and turning in several outstanding performances on the gridiron and in several other sports for several decades now. But those who are part of this close-knit community — whether they live in Columbus, Colorado Springs or Corpus Christi — know that OSU has more to offer than top-notch athletics. Much more. Here are some
Earlier this year we profiled Minnesota women’s basketball player Rachel Banham as she approached breaking the Big Ten’ women’s basketball all-time scoring record. Since this feature originally aired on TV and online, Banham was selected No. 4 overall by the Connecticut Sun in the WNBA Draft. She is averaging five points and 14 minutes a game so far in her rookie season. The daughter of two police officers and granddaughter of the first African-American policeman at Minnesota, Banham overcame an ACL injury at Minnesota to return to her prolific scoring ways. As a 5-foot-9 senior guard in 2015-2016, she scored 60
