There aren’t many high-calorie contests on this 10-game Big Ten menu for Saturday, just light fare for the most part.
Every week during the 2013 football season, BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and hoops analyst Stephen Bardo, a huge football fan, make their Big Ten picks. We also provide polls for Big Ten fans to select their winners. Three weeks in the books, we have a logjam at the top, with Big Ten fans, Merriman and Yarina all tied at 30-6.
BTN.com and the Big Ten Digital Network will stream the inaugural Big Ten Hockey Media Day live from the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota this day morning. Starting at 10 a.m. ET, watch the coaches answer questions from reporters live via this Big Ten Digital Network live stream.
There are 10 games on the schedule this Saturday. And, at first glance, it’s not a great lineup of contests. No doubt, Michigan State’s visit to Notre Dame is the headliner. Lots of good storylines around the Spartans, who think they have found their offense. We shall see. Also, Big Ten play opens, with Purdue traveling to Wisconsin.
