Dienhart: Your team's 2014 cupcake game

Pretty much every team has one game on its schedule that can be viewed as a “cupcake.” Now, that doesn’t mean the team is guaranteed to roll to victory – or even win the game. There’s always the chance a team pulls an upset. That said, here is my easiest game for every Big Ten team.

The Badgers showed off the designs Wednesday during their annual photo shoot. To be fair, many of the combinations aren’t that different, with the team boasting a primary white helmet and alternate red lid that can be mixed and matched with three facemasks (white, red and black). The Badgers did unveil a new combination Wednesday, and they seemed to hint that it could be in play this fall. [ MORE: Video: Northwestern hints at a new uniform combination, too ]
