With the Big Ten Football Championship just days away, we're dialing up our coverage on TV and online. Have a look at what we have planned for TV here, including details on our Saturday shows when we air a special BTN LIve (@BTNLive on Twitter) at 11 a.m. ET and full pregame show at 6:30 p.m. ET. And yes, we will re-air the title game on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. But before all of that, catch Big Ten Football & Beyond tonight at 10:30 p.m..

Also, in the latest reader mailbag from's Tom Dienhart our senior writer answers a number of questions as bowl buzz builds. Plus, Dienhart talked to several Big Ten coaches to get their scouting reports on the Spartans and Badgers. His unit-by-unit breakdowns are a must-read: Part I is here and part two is here. And let's get hypothetical and ask, "What if this wasn't  the first Big Ten Football Championship?" Finally, if you missed it, the Big Ten released some more football honors Wednesday afternoon.
