PSU Decorates BTN Bus

As the BTN Football Tour made its way through Big Ten country, we noticed fans and players alike were leaving souvenirs on the side of our bus. Iowa and Wisconsin left magnetic schedules, which stayed with us until the final stop. And while we were in State College, Michael Mauti added a PSU logo. Check out the video below:

Michigan Stadium Tour

Ever walk from the Michigan football locker room and onto iconic Michigan Stadium? We had the opportunity to do so during our annual BTN Football Tour earlier this month. It’s a pretty cool experience — even when there’s no gameday atmosphere whatsoever. I can’t imagine what it would be like on a fall Saturday when 100,000-plus fans are screaming their heads off waiting for the Wolverines to run out and hit the “Go Blue” banner.

Big Ten Media Days came and went late last week in Chicago, and it was an eventful couple of days at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. While no preseason favorites were announced this year, there still was plenty of activity and countless storylines. You had legendary Penn State coach Joe Paterno back for yet another season, a new perennial power joining the conference (Nebraska), and five new coaches in attendance.

BTN Summer Renovations

Once Nebraska was invited to join the Big Ten, we knew the conference would receive a new logo and our studio would undergo a serious makeover. The former was a very public thing, while the latter was something Big Ten fans would have no clue about — unless they took a tour of BTN’s studio. Good thing for social media. Recently, I’ve tweeted shots of all the cosmetic changes around BTN, hoping to give the fans an inside look.
