SI.com’s Seth Davis has a terrific NBA draft piece that has pro scouts analyzing the draft’s top prospects. The list includes six Big Ten players, highlighted by Trey Burke, Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller. See what NBA scouts had to say about the Big Ten’s top draft eligible players in this post.
The Big Ten announced six-year bowl partnerships with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and Holiday Bowl on Monday. Check out the official releases on both bowls in this post.
The 2013 NBA Draft is Thursday night. When will Trey Burke, Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller be selected? Most experts think it will be pretty early. But there are other former Big Ten stars who could be drafted, including Deshaun Thomas and Tim Hardaway Jr. With the draft just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to take a look at every Big Ten pick since 2000.
Next up in my super-early week-by-week preview of the 2013 Big Ten football schedule: Week 11. This is a week highlighted by the massively huge Legends Division battle between Nebraska and Michigan at Michigan Stadium. It also features one nonconference game: BYU at Wisconsin. Get all the storylines, matchups and my game rankings for Week 11 in this post.

California, here comes the Big Ten! Later today, the Big Ten will announce agreements to send teams to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, beginning with the 2014 season. The Pac-12 will be the foe in each bowl. The Big Ten had a tie-in with the Holiday Bowl from 1986-94. Illinois played in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl after the 2011 season.
