Minnesota at Iowa, outside, at night in Iowa City, in November. That will be a brisk one.

That’s a heckuva slate of games on the B1G Network. Usually the hors d’oeuvres precede the entrees, but it will be tough for the league games to measure up those tasty non-conference games.

harbaugh visits college park! … plus John may be there as well … def B1G time for the TERPS! … GO M A R Y L A N D!!!
