Big Ten Network
They’ve been called arguably the best women’s college hockey team ever. This past weekend, the undefeated Gopher women’s hockey team won their 49 consecutive game as well the national championship – but it wasn’t shown on television.
The Big Ten network started in 2007 with plans to mix up to 660 hours of non-sports programs every year into its menu of football, basketball and other sports.
The University of Minnesota football team will host Northwestern for the fall 2012 Homecoming game, and the Gophers will take place in Iowa’s Homecoming game, too, in a fight for Floyd of Rosedale.
Gopher head coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure due to heat complications on the sidelines of TCF Bank Stadium during the final seconds of Saturday’s home opener game against the New Mexico State.
The Big Ten Network is changing its name to BTN.
