Sports Illustrated released five regional covers for its College Football Preview magazine Wednesday morning, and Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is one of the cover boys. The publication picks the Buckeyes No. 4 in its preseason top 25, the same spot it was last year, good enough for inclusion in the inaugural College Football Playoff. See Miller’s SI cover in this post.

Lefties, today is your big day! Aug. 13, 2014 marks the 22nd annual International Left-Handers Day. In honor of the special day, I created a list of some of my favorite left-handed Big Ten athletes.
With the College Football Playoff era upon us, ESPN.com decided to assemble a 13-member committee to create its preseason Top 25 Power Rankings. Four Big Ten teams made the list, headlined by Ohio State (No. 6) and Michigan State (No. 7), last year’s Big Ten title game participants. Wisconsin came in at No. 17, and Nebraska No. 22.
