When one thinks of Nebraska athletics, there is an immediate thought that likely comes to mind: Football.
His first two trips to Big Ten media days, Nebraska coach Tim Miles was out of the spotlight.
The Big Ten has a number of touted freshmen entering the league this season. There’s Indiana’s James Blackmon, Maryland’s Melo Trimble and Northwestern’s Vic Law, to name a few. But the best of all may be Ohio State’s DeAngelo Russell, the favorite to be Big Ten Freshman of the Year.
Some interesting games dot the Big Ten map, including a key West Division tilt with Nebraska visiting Northwestern (watch on BTN/BTN2Go) and an interesting intra-divisional clash with Iowa at Maryland. And could we see an upset when Purdue visits Minnesota?
