Two stops down, two Big Ten football player signatures added to the BTN tour bus. The BTN Football Tour was in Lincoln on Thursday night, and that meant it was time for Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez to sign his likeness on our bus. If you haven’t seen the bus yet, either in pictures or on the streets across Big Ten country, a Big Ten player from every team is represented on it. Martinez, a junior, is Nebraska’s representative. See the picture inside this post and watch our interview with Martinez now.

Throughout the seasons, I answer your Big Ten football and basketball questions in my Big Ten Mailbag. While on the BTN summer bus tour, I’m fielding questions from every stop along our 3,000-plus mile trek across Big Ten country. We were at Iowa practice Wednesday, and Hawkeyes fans sent me their questions. Nebraska is up Thursday. Here’s what I want to see from the Huskers. If you have a question, send it to me in the box at the bottom of this post or tweet it to me (@BTNTomDienhart).
