ANF Day at Kinnick Saturday on BTN

Saturday night’s Northwestern-Iowa game on BTN will be a special one at Kinnick Stadium. As part of the America Needs Farmers partnership between the Iowa Farm Bureau and the Iowa Athletics Department, the game has been designated “ANF Day at Kinnick.” What does that mean? Basically, there will be a host of activities around the stadium. Read about the events in this HawkeyeSports.com story. Among the day’s features, the school is asking fans to stripe Kinnick gold and black, which will only enhance BTN’s telecast. See images from the last gold and black stripe game.

Illinois Asks Fans to "Stripe the Stadium" Saturday

At 6-0 and off to the team’s best start since its 1951 national championship season, the Illinois football program is looking to take advantage of its hot start. To that end, the Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics is asking fans to “Stripe the Stadium” orange and blue for Illinois’ nationally televised game against Ohio State on Saturday afternoon. If you remember, Iowa did something similar to this last season. See the pictures here. The idea worked perfectly at Kinnick Stadium, and orange and blue should look equally cool at Memorial Stadium.

Big Ten's Best: LBs 2000-2010

When the casual college football fan thinks of the linebacker position, one program always stands out: Penn State. It’s called “Linebacker U,” after all. Jack Ham and others started the great tradition in the late 1960s, and it’s truly been a trend ever since. Perhaps no decade was more decorated for Penn State linebackers than the 2000s. You know the names: Sean Lee, Dan Connor and Paul Posluszny, among others. All three made the cut for BTN’s loaded list of top linebackers of the 2000s. Among the other recognized players, there’s the nation’s all-time leading tackler, a two-time Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a guy who won three BCS bowls. Watch a clip from Tuesday’s show and see the entire list in this post.
