In addition to reliving Penn State’s four-overtime win over Michigan (watch the entire game on BTN2Go), the crew from “The Journey: Big Ten Football 2013” presented by Best Buy takes you into the trenches with three Big Ten linemen – two of them played in that game. Meet Penn State’s John Urschel, who you will learn is a star both on the field and in the classroom.

But did you know he used to love Barney, too? Yes, THAT Barney.
