In anticipation of the upcoming season, the Big Ten Network surveyed Americans to find out how and where they like to watch college football.

Ever wonder what it’s like for a walk-on to learn that he has become a scholarship student-athlete? Obviously, it’s a special and emotional moment. But how is the news broken, and how is it received?

Dienhart: Ohio State paces 5 Big Ten teams in AP poll

The AP has released its preseason poll—and to the shock of no one, Alabama is No. 1. The Crimson Tide has won three of the last four national championships, bringing back many key players from last year’s squad that dumped Notre Dame in the BCS title game.

That’s exactly what’s happening tonight as fans are invited to Camp Randall for the stadium’s first ever Movie Night. The event is open to the general public and admission is free.

Twitter: 2013 Big Ten football breakout players?

The topic of breakout players can be an ambiguous one. For example, some people view Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah as a 2013 breakout player. Others, meanwhile, feel that with 1,315 total yards and 10 scores a season ago, he’s well past “breakout” territory. I tend to side with the latter.

To be fair, my offensive picks had
