Stuck in the past? Horrible mistake was made on the scoreboard at the B1G Championship Game
Someone forget to change the template.
Either that or Iowa decided to undergo a little bit of a brand refresh ahead of its Big Ten title game against Michigan. The Hawkeyes—it’s important to specify the team name here—appeared on the big screen at Lucas Oil Stadium as the Buckeyes.

Look, it’s understandable if someone in the stadium crew forgot to update the info for Saturday’s game. Ohio State, the actual Buckeyes of the Big Ten, have played in 4 straight Big Ten championship games and won 4 straight Big Ten championship games. Indianapolis has been a second home for the Buckeyes. They’ve played in 6 of the last 8 title games.
But this is a new year.
Iowa is in the title game for the first time since 2015 representing the Big Ten West. And Michigan is in the Championship Game for the first time since its inception in 2011. The Wolverines got there by beating the Buckeyes last week 42-27 in Ann Arbor, coach Jim Harbaugh’s first win over the hated rival and the program’s first in the series since 2011.
You can watch as the Wolverines and the Buckeyes, no, sorry, Hawkeyes fight it out for the Big Ten crown on FOX.
