It is no question that football and basketball rule the world of college athletics. Ohio State is considered a “top-notch” national powerhouse when it comes to college football, and the same can be said about Michigan State when talking about college hoops.
Friday’s episode of “Forever B1G” profiles Mike Hohensee (Minnesota) and Maurice Ager (Michigan State) in our latest look at two former Big Ten stars who have pursued careers once their playing days ended. Learn more about them both from a portion of the show in this post, and then tune in at 7:30 p.m. ET that night to see the entire program.
If you’re on Twitter, you can vote in our ongoing series of Big Ten Twitter polls for our weekday TV show #BTNLive each days at 6 p.m. ET. On tonight’s #BTNLive show, our experts look ahead to Saturday and debate this question: Which Big Ten football team is most likely to pull an upset Saturday? Four possible answers: #IUupset, #MINNupset, #ILLupset, and #NUupset.
This is the first Saturday that features exclusively Big Ten games, with five on the slate. All eyes will be on Evanston, Ill., where a national TV audience will tune in for the Ohio State at Northwestern game.
Every week during the 2013 football season, BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and hoops analyst Stephen Bardo, a huge football fan, make their Big Ten picks. We also provide polls for Big Ten fans to select their winners.
