Big Ten media days: Times, TV schedule for Big Ten football media days in Chicago
Get ready for 13 hours of live coverage at Big Ten Football Media Days in 2016 Monday and Tuesday. We know not everyone will be near a TV when the event is going on, so all press conferences can be streamed via the web, smartphones, tablets and connected devices on BTN2Go.
Here’s what we’ll have on live TV Monday and Tuesday (all times ET):
Monday, 1 p.m.: Press conferences for Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern), Darrell Hazell (Purdue), Chris Ash (Rutgers), James Franklin (Penn State), Tracy Claeys (Minnesota), and Jim Harbaugh (Michigan).
