Rick Mount honored at halftime of Purdue-Iowa game

There are good players. There are great players. And then there is Purdue basketball legend Rick Mount. The Boilermakers’ all-time leading scorer was honored at halftime of Saturday’s Purdue vs. Iowa men’s basketball game on BTN. Take a look at the full video at the top of this post. Mount left Purdue as the Big Ten’s all-time scoring leader with 2,323 points through only three varsity seasons. That record was later broken and is currently held by former Indiana standout Calbert Cheaney. The Boilermaker legend led Purdue to a 56-20 overall record during his career. Enjoy, Purdue fans!

Hackenberg, Johnson to forgo senior season, enter NFL Draft

Penn State standout quarterback Christian Hackenberg is set to take his talents to the NFL. Following Penn State’s 24-17 loss to Georgia in Saturday’s Taxslayer Bowl, Hackenberg announced that he will forgo his senior season and declare for the 2016 NFL Draft. Hackenberg finishes his Penn State career as one of the most decorated quarterbacks in school history. The former Big Ten Freshman of the Year is PSU’s all-time leader in multiple passing categories, including career completions, yards, and 300-yard passing games. In Penn State’s Big Ten regular season finale against Michigan State, Hackenberg passed Matt McGloin as the school’s

#BTNStandout: Zak Showalter hits all eight shots vs. Rutgers

Zak Showalter had the kind of day players dream about Saturday afternoon. [ MORE: AP: Showalter, Wisconsin down Rutgers, 79-57 ] The Wisconsin junior and former walk-on scored a career-high 21 points on a perfect 8-of-8 from the field, including 4-of-4 from downtown, in an easy win vs. Rutgers. That’s right, he didn’t miss a single shot en route to becoming the first Big Ten player since 2013 (Indiana’s Will Sheehey) to have a perfect day from the field with at least eight shot attempts. Showalter also played some defense, rising for another highlight-reel block. Watch every one of Showalter’s

TaxSlayer Bowl: Georgia thwarts Penn State comeback bid

Playing vs. an SEC team is always a good measuring stick for a team. Even an SEC team that canned its head coach, as Mark Richt was fired and is now coaching Miami (FL). [ MORE: BOWL SCHEDULE | BOX | PBP | AP RECAP ] These iconic programs last met in the Sugar Bowl after the 1982 season, when Penn State dumped Heisman winner Hershel Walker and the Bulldogs to win the national championship. The stakes weren’t nearly that high today in a clash that often resembled a taffy pull between teams that played good defense—and spotty offense. The

Wisconsin DC Dave Aranda accepts same position at LSU

LSU coach Les Miles was impressed by the defense of Wisconsin coordinator Dave Aranda when the Tigers edged the Badgers in the 2014 season opener. Now Aranda will have a chance to see if he can replicate his recent success in the Big Ten with Miles' LSU squad in the Southeastern Conference.

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State alumna spreads her wings right after graduation

Wanted: Recent college grad for a job that involves working with very large and somewhat scary-looking birds. Position entails having to more or less live outdoors. Some perks included, but pay comes out to less than minimum wage. The job market may be tough right now, but it’s probably safe to say that most college graduates wouldn’t rush to send off their CV in response to a job listing like that. Then again, most college grads aren’t Alyssa Davidge. This Penn State alumna landed the interesting gig described above right after her recent graduation. She works long hours to help

Rose Bowl: McCaffrey leads Stanford to win over Iowa

This time last year, Iowa was getting scortched by Tennessee in the TaxSlayer Bowl to cap a disappointing 7-6 season that set in motion an offseason of tumult. Kirk Ferentz examined his program and made alterations, including switching practices from afternoon to morning. But most prescient, Ferentz tabbed C.J. Beathard the QB over Jake Rudock shortly after the loss to the Vols. Rudock transferred to Michigan, Beathard became a star and the rest is history. [ MORE: BOWL SCHEDULE | AP RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY ] The Hawkeyes went on to post a season for the ages, going 12-0
