Big Ten football is just around the corner, and as teams start to gear up for the 2019 season, there is much to discuss. The 2019 Big Ten media days begin Thursday, marking the (unofficial) start of the upcoming Big Ten season. There will be more than 14 hours of media coverage live from Chicago, and we are here to make sure you don’t miss a second of it.
Most media days usually do not come with any pivotal, earth-shattering announcements, but we’ll at least get a first update on injuries, playing time and position battles from around the Big Ten.
Though Pat Fitzgerald’s press conference is scheduled for Friday, he will join Northwestern’s player representatives (Fisher, Gaziano, Thomas) at the BTN studio set following Thursday’s press conference. The coaches and students will visit the set for BTN Live: Football Media Day Special, from approximately 2 p.m. CT to 6 p.m. CT. Here’s the full slate for tomorrow:
