BTN LiveBIG: Living 'B1G' in 2015

When we say the students, faculty and staff, and alumni of the universities of the Big Ten Conference “live big,” we aren’t overstating our case.

We told more than 200 of those stories in 2015. We loved them all, but there were a few that stood out to us as especially interesting and high-impact.

Hackenberg, Johnson to forgo senior season, enter NFL Draft

Penn State standout quarterback Christian Hackenberg is set to take his talents to the NFL.
