Big Ten Media Days 2014: How to watch, coaches schedule, time, TV channel

The last milestone before fall camp arrives is here. See which coaches are speaking when and how you can take in all the action.

Big Ten Conference

The last major milestone before fall camp is in full swing a week from today, Big Ten Media Days 2014 kicks off this morning in Chicago. All now 14 of the league's coaches will be given roughly 15 minutes to make a statement about the coming season and then field questions. Each of the conference's teams are also represented by three student athletes (Braxton Miller, Jeff Heuerman, and Michael Bennett are representing the Buckeyes; see below), who take questions in smaller breakout type sessions.

Like in previous years, the Big Ten Network's Mark Silverman and commissioner Jim Delany, who last year foreshadowed much of the upheaval currently facing college athletics in what felt like a graduate lecture, will also speak to the gathered media. The College Football Playof's COO, Michael Kelly, will also be in attendance and speak.

Both the Big Ten Network (available online at BTN2Go) and ESPNU (on WatchESPN for cable subscribers) will be covering all the action. BTN's live coverage, which will kickoff at 10:30 a.m. ET, will be the only live coverage for the morning session. ESPNU will join the event already in progress and even showcase some of their coverage tape delayed, starting at 1 p.m. ET. Select Big Ten coaches and players will also appear live on other ESPN shows and platforms, including SportsCenter and College Football Live in addition to ESPNU’s Media Days coverage.
