Nine Big Ten men’s basketball teams opened their 2013-14 seasons Friday night, including No. 2 Michigan State and No. 7 Michigan, and every team emerged victorious. Watch all of the top highlights and get scores, stats and recaps for all of the games in this post.
Rocker Tommy Lee wound up spinning at the Nebraska Cornhuskers season opener tonight at the new Pinnacle Bank Arena. You may recall the Motley Crue drummer “attended” Nebraska way back in 2004 for an NBC-TV reality show. His performance Friday night was part of the opening of the Huskers new arena.
Nebraska and Iowa both advanced to Sunday’s championship game of the Big Ten Women’s Soccer Tournament after winning their semifinal games on Friday afternoon at host site Illinois. No. 7 seed Iowa shut out No. 3 seed Penn State 1-0 before top-seed Nebraska dropped No. 4 seed Indiana 3-1. Sunday’s championship airs live on BTN/BTN2Go at 2 p.m. ET.
Saturday is almost here. Can you feel it? Can you sense it? Every team gets four downs to make something happen. So, why not me? That’s the idea here. Here’s what’s running through my mind as I dream fancifully about Week 11 of the Big Ten season.
Here’s something awesome: Nebraska had Ron Kellogg III go undercover on campus to ask fans about last week’s thrilling game, his Hail Mary, the team’s quarterback situation and this week’s game at Michigan. To no surprise, the video didn’t disappoint. It was hilarious, actually. Watch it in this post. Nice week, Nebraska!
Another week, another quiz. Yes, it’s time to test your knowledge by taking another B1G grid quiz. You know the drill by now.
Week 11 is highlighted by a key Legends Division clash, with Nebraska playing at Michigan. Let’s call this the “Sense of Urgency Bowl.” Sounds about right. The loser will have a difficult time getting back into the division hunt.
