20 Big Ten stars make Phil Steele's 2015 Preseason All-American Team

College football fans will like this: Phil Steele released his 2015 Preseason All-American Team on Monday. [ MORE: Get Tom Dienhart’s preseason Big Ten coverage ] As expected, Steele likes the Big Ten, in particular the talent at reigning national champ Ohio State and fellow Big Ten East power Michigan State. The Buckeyes (8) and the Spartans (5) combine for 13 of the 20 Big Ten players on Steele’s four teams, and the former also accounts for half of the conference’s four first-teamers (Ezekiel Elliott and Joey Bosa).

BTN LiveBIG: Nebraska research team leads charge to create small surgical robots

Some of humankind’s greatest achievements have been rendered in science fiction before they became science fact.

Reform is in the air: Creating a global education experience

ROSEMONT, Ill. – A global education experience. That’s a mouthful. And that’s also the goal of Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany for every student-athlete. Live it, learn it, know it. A procession of league athletic directors paraded in front of the media the last two days at the Big Ten’s headquarters and was peppered with myriad questions. What’s going on with the upcoming TV contract negotiations? Are there too many hoops games? Did the College Football Playoff work? Is the graduate transfer rule flawed? [ MORE: Grad transfer rule comes under scrutiny at AD meetings ] And on it went,

Twenty-four Nebraska baseball players get stuck in elevator

Every season, the Big Ten baseball tourney provides its share of laughs, from players showing their personality while announcing the lineup card to them videobombing in-game dugout interviews. [ MORE: View our Big Ten tourney homepage ] The fun in front of the camera came a day early this year. Tuesday, on the eve of the 2015 Big Ten Tournament, 24 Nebraska players got stuck in an elevator. Yes, they packed a couple dozen people in an elevator. Lucky for us, catcher Tanner Lubach filmed video proof of the mishap, to give everyone an idea of just what the scene
