2023 Big Ten Media Days: Day 1 schedule
2023 Big Ten Media Days are finally here! Over Wednesday and Thursday, the league will be live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to preview the 2023 college football season.
Among other topics to be discussed, this year’s Media Days will be the first-ever for new league commissioner Tony Petitti. Petitti assumes his post following Kevin Warren’s departure to work for the Chicago Bears.
Northwestern interim coach David Braun will hit the podium among teams to speak on Wednesday. He will undoubtedly have some questions to address from the hazing scandal that has rocked the Wildcats this offseason. Northwestern’s player representatives announced on Tuesday that they will not appear at Big Ten Media days.
Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, Penn State’s James Franklin and Ohio State’s Ryan Day are some of the other notable names to speak on Wednesday. Here is the full Day 1 podium schedule with full coverage provided by the Big Ten Network:
