Not one to be sidelined, White is leading the fight against the neurodegenerative disease.
Super Bowl LIII is set, and it will be the New England Patriots vs. the Los Angels Rams on Sunday, Feb. 3. Eighteen former Big Ten players will be vying for a Super Bowl ring, including at least one representative from 11 of the conference's schools.
Thirty-five former Big Ten stars, not including Maryland, Nebraska or Rutgers players who were in school before entering the conference, are on AFC and NFC Championship Game rosters. See the full list inside.
A couple things we can expect to see every year the day after the national championship game: 1. the final AP top 25 poll, and 2. the way-too-early polls for the following season. This post is all about the way-too-early 2019 polls.
Five Big Ten teams are ranked in the final AP Top 25 Poll, headlined by Big Ten and Rose Bowl game champ Ohio State, at No. 3. Michigan (No. 13), Penn State (No. 17), Northwestern (No. 21) and Iowa (No. 25) also finish ranked.
Tyler Trent wasn't introduced to the world long ago, but the Purdue superfan made quite the impact in a very short time. Trent, 20, who raised so much awareness for cancer and inspired so many with how he handled the disease, died Tuesday.
Chances are, Iowa fans will be talking about the 2019 Outback Bowl for a while. The Hawkeyes weren't expected to win, but they rallied a pair of times en route to carding a memorable 27-22 victory over No. 18 Mississippi State.
This much is certain: Penn State fans will never forget Trace McSorley. They loved the record-setting quarterback before the Citrus Bowl on Tuesday afternoon, but it all went to another level with what he did in the 27-24 loss to Kentucky.
The NFL playoffs are set, and former Big Ten standouts are all over the rosters. There's 84 in all (not including Maryland, Nebraska and Rutgers players who were in school before entering B1G), paced by an even dozen for both Dallas and New Orleans.
Early signing day is Wednesday (9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET on BTN), and there will be no shortage of can't-miss recruits inking with Big Ten schools. To get ready for the big day, we spotlights several recent Big Ten signees who have lived up to the hype.
