This post is the home for the best photos from the Big Ten Football Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and we’ve added a spectacular video looking at the images of the past football season, too. We’ll be updating the gallery all night. All of our galleries are on our photo gallery archive page.
Kickoff of the second Big Ten title game is hours away between Nebraska and Wisconsin. A Big Ten title is on the line, and the winner will play Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Here are four things to watch.
Look back at the Big Ten Championship Game live blog from Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina.
Prior to Saturday’s 2012 Big Ten Football Championship Game, the conference hosted its second annual Big Ten Fan Fest at the Indiana Convention Center. There, “#BTNLive” hosted a live show that included interviews with Nebraska legend Tommie Frazier and Michigan’s Taylor Lewan, the 2012 Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year, among others. Like last year, the event also featured tons of fan entertainment. See photos of the event in this gallery.
Both coaches in Saturday’s Big Ten Football Championship spoke with our crew in Indianapolis as part of Friday night’s “Big Ten Football Report.” Watch both interviews in this post. Remember: Our coverage continues Saturday with “#BTNLive” from Indianapolis at 11 a.m. ET, our “Championship Pregame Show” at 6:30 p.m., and full post-game coverage after the game. BTN.com will also be live blogging the entire game.
The Journey 2012
Injuries are a key factor in any game, and this game is no different. Nebraska will miss the presence of tackle Baker Steinkuhler on the interior of the defensive line. The Huskers need Chase Rome—among others—to step up with Steinkuhler out. And center Justin Jackson is out. It will be Mark Pelini or Cole Pensick at center.
The Journey 2012
This Big Ten title game is about more than celebrating the culmination of the season and crowning a conference champ. This Big Ten title game is about validating a program—and validating a coach. I’m talking about Nebraska and Bo Pelini. That’s what’s at stake on Saturday night inside Lucas Oil Stadium—the “House the Peyton Manning Built.”
