Big Ten

FanBuzz has the latest on news regarding Big Ten coaches, which players have committed to Big Ten universities, game day news, playoff predictions and more. Our writers pay attention to all of the controversial and enlightening things that sports commentators say so you don’t have to.

The Big Ten Conference began in 1896 when representatives from seven universities met in Chicago to discuss what would become the foundation of the “Intercollegiate Conference Athletic Association.” At that time, the conference consisted of the Perdue University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota and Northwestern University. Indiana University, the State University of Iowa and Ohio State University would eventually join. Although the public had long been referring to the conference as the “Big Ten,” the name wasn’t used in an official capacity until 1987. The Big Ten Conference is headquartered in Rosemont, Illinois. Jim Delany is the current commissioner.

Today, Big Ten members includes Indiana University, University of Maryland, University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Rutgers University in the East Division and University of Illinois, University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, University Nebraska, Northwestern University, Purdue University and University of Wisconsin in the West Division.

The Big 10 Conference is a member of the Division 1 of the Football Bowl Subdivision of the NCAA, which features the most competitive teams in college football. Other “Power Five” conferences are Big 12, ACC, Pac 12 and SEC.
