Penn State has one of the most storied football programs not only in the Big Ten, but throughout the entire country. On Saturday at 4 p.m. ET, “Big Ten Elite” profiles the 1986 Penn State national championship team. In this documentary program, we look back at all the unforgettable moments that led to the Nittany Lions’ perfect 12-0 season.
All eyes are on Evanston for the Ohio State at Northwestern game in what shapes up as an interesting Week 6 of the Big Ten season.
No individual embodies Penn State hockey like Joe Battista. As Associate Athletic Director for Ice Arena and Hockey Development, Battista knows the program inside and out. He played, coached, recruited, built it, even. The “godfather” of the team, he’s been through it all. Legitimizing high-level hockey at Penn State has been a century-long struggle.

It is no question that football and basketball rule the world of college athletics. Ohio State is considered a “top-notch” national powerhouse when it comes to college football, and the same can be said about Michigan State when talking about college hoops.
This is the first Saturday that features exclusively Big Ten games, with five on the slate. All eyes will be on Evanston, Ill., where a national TV audience will tune in for the Ohio State at Northwestern game.
Every week during the 2013 football season, BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and hoops analyst Stephen Bardo, a huge football fan, make their Big Ten picks. We also provide polls for Big Ten fans to select their winners.
Come basketball season, Seth Davis is all over your television screen. This winter, that will include BTN/BTN2Go. Davis, along with former “Flyin’ Illini” star Stephen Bardo, highlights the new additions to BTN’s 2013-14 hoops talent roster. The SI and CBS Sports personality will serve as a game analyst and hopes to also find the time to do some studio work.
