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.

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.

Now, the former Scarlet Knight gets to honor LeGrand, who was paralyzed in a 2010 game.
