Spring football games broke out across Big Ten territory Saturday afternoon, with Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern and Purdue all in action. Weather played a big role all day, forcing the Hoosiers and Boilermakers inside and resulting in Nebraska canceling its game. Find out what I learned from Saturday’s action in this post. Also, don’t forget to check out our Big Ten spring roundup.
The Purdue football had its annual spring game canceled due to inclement weather Saturday afternoon. The Boilermakers moved the festivities indoors and practiced in front of former players and media. As a result, BTN’s live steam of the event also was canceled. Watch our Purdue highlights now, and see tweets and get all your Purdue spring coverage in this post.
Big Ten spring football games weren’t the only events affected by the inclement weather across Big Ten country Saturday. A fair share of baseball and softball games were postponed, as well. See Saturday’s baseball roundup, courtesy of BigTen.org in this post.

Spring games offer fans that first opportunity to sneak a peek at their team. What are the key areas of concern? And are they being filled? Or will a lot of work remain in the fall? Don’t expect any big resolutions, as coaches typically play things very pedestrian and vanilla so as not to show opponents anything new they are working on that could be compromising down the road.
