With so much football happening across the Big Ten Conference in the early weeks of the season, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and find out where your game will appear on TV. So allow us to introduce you once again to the BTN TV GameFinder. Avoid the rush and panic on Saturday. Use GameFinder below in this post, but if you prefer to bookmark it for future weeks, you can do that, too.
Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season the 12 Big Ten football coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio Tuesday afternoon for each segment of the call, and we do this every week. Also @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along online Tuesday mornings.

I have written much about the 2012 season, which starts on Thursday when Minnesota plays at UNLV. But before the first kickoff of the first game, I’m offering my look at how I think the Big Ten race will shape up this fall. My BTN.com colleague Brent Yarina did this on Monday to give you another perspective.
This is the first edition of a new weekly post where I will look at one key question for each team in a piece called: 12 Teams, 12 Questions. I’ll roll these out every Tuesday and look forward to hearing what you think about your team and your team’s games.

Mississippi, Northwestern vs. Syracuse, Ohio State vs. Miami (OH), Penn State vs. Ohio, Purdue vs. Eastern Kentucky, Wisconsin vs. Northern Iowa

See all my predictions in this post.

The BTN crew spent almost three weeks on the road travelling over 3,000 miles on visits to every Big Ten training camp. We saw a lot of football, talked to a lot of coaches and ate a lot of bananas and beef jerky on our super-deluxe tour bus that was tricked out with two color TVs, two fridges and Wi-Fi that sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t work. Two cases of Red Bull and a box of Twizzlers later, I put a punctuation mark on the 2012 BTN bus tour with a fun look at our circuitous journey from Lincoln to State College—and points in between.
