Hey, Purdue fans, want to see your face on the Purdue helmet this year? You can make it happen. Really.

[ MORE: Check out our uniform-centric Clothes Call section ] This is a creative idea, one that can only increase student ticket sales and student interest. It’s a win-win. Only question is, will other teams copy the idea? Or, maybe, do the same with

Video: Wildcats get fancy in uniform feature

Northwestern has no shortage of uniform combinations. Under Armour revamped the team’s look prior to the 2012 season, and last year it introduced an all-white design. There’s countless helmets to go along with the three different jerseys and pants (white, black and purple). Basically, there’s no telling what Northwestern will wear from one Saturday to the next. Players love it. And, most importantly, recruits love it. Based on the Northwestern YouTube video above, we may see some new combinations in 2014. In the video, linebacker Collin Ellis says, “We’ve never done this before,” while wearing a black top and white

Photos: Spartans show off possible new uniform designs

Last year during its run to the Big Ten and Rose Bowl titles, Michigan State unveiled a few new uniform designs. Like, the all-green look it wore for the Big Ten title game and Rose Bowl Game. Well, if the football models on display at the team’s complex are any indication, the Spartans could have some new designs in 2014. See photos of the uniforms in this post.

Thursday, the Buckeyes unveiled their new football turf; Friday, it was the renderings of its new “state-of-the-art” locker room, which includes a “waterwall.” This is what the Ohio State locker room WILL look like. #waterwall pic.twitter.com/1ujAITfW0Q — Ryan Ginn (@RyanGinnBSB) May 16, 2014 A rendering of the other side of the Ohio State locker room. #waterwall pic.twitter.com/Hv3TepNcDt — Ryan Ginn (@RyanGinnBSB) May 16, 2014 Ohio State's locker room

Sometimes, rivalries take a backseat to reality. That was evident at the Cincinnati-Ohio State baseball game Tuesday, as the Bearcats added No. 11 patches to the right sleeve of their jersey. The patch honors Ohio State freshman pitcher Zach Farmer, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia late last month and will miss the rest of the season. See a picture of the patch in this post.

Michigan State's Rose Bowl ring is kind of impressive

BTN’s Lisa Byington gave Michigan State fans a sneak peek at the team’s Rose Bowl ring during Saturday afternoon’s spring game. The ring, which the Spartans haven’t seen yet, is quite impressive.

Not an official member of the Big Ten until July 1, Rutgers will look a lot like a Big Ten team for its spring game Saturday. The B1G logos were added to the turf months ago, and now the jerseys have the B1G logo, as well. See a picture of the patch on Rutgers’ home jersey in this post.

The way uniforms change nowadays, nothing is out of the question. Like, could adidas one day outfit the Michigan football team in an all-maize uniform? Possibly, although the school and company have not announced any such plans. For what it’s worth, Devin Gardner and the rest of the quarterbacks were in all-maize for Saturday’s annual spring game. [ MORE: Watch all of our Michigan spring game highlights, interviews ] This is not exactly news, but it is interesting, especially considering the maize tops featured the “B1G” patch and nameplates. Gardner’s jersey even included his familiar Tom Harmon patch. So, for
