Clothes Call: See new 2014 Big Ten football designs

Another Big Ten media days is in the books, and that means it’s time to take an early look at the new designs Big Ten football teams will wear in 2014. As of right now, other than Illinois, it doesn’t look like there will be a lot of new looks. But that can change in-season, because teams like to keep these things under wraps and Adidas, Nike and Under Armour can always decide to add a new wrinkle. See some of the new designs in this post.

Everybody enjoys a good football uniform. Already home to some of the game’s most iconic uniforms, the Big Ten will garner even more attention for its designs with Maryland and Rutgers’ arrival. Who has the best uniforms? We asked five college football writers to help us form BTN.com’s 2014 Big Ten uniform poll.

Photos: Wildcats unveil new court design

Northwestern released the design for its new court at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Wednesday morning. The new floor is a much more classic look than the one the Wildcats played on the last two seasons. The biggest changes – other than the elimination of the crayola-like purple shade that didn’t match the midcourt logo – are the darker shade of wood, the Wildcat-less “N” midcourt logo and the addition of the Northwestern Stripe under both baskets. The latter is an excellent touch – just as it was on the school’s uniforms. Another small change: The “B1G” logo is moving from outside

Khaseem Greene changes number to honor Eric LeGrand

Rutgers product and current Chicago Bears linebacker Khaseem Greene is switching his number to 52 to honor former teammate and friend Eric LeGrand.

Penn State: Helmet that went viral is 'office decoration'
