    NU Senior Trio Set to Represent #B1GCats at B1G Media Day

    July 10, 2014

    EVANSTON, Ill -- With the addition of Rutgers and Maryland now official, it's a new year and a new look for the Big Ten Conference, but one tradition remains: the annual Big Ten Football Media Day and Kickoff Luncheon in Chicago. Now in their 43rd year, this month's events are slated for Monday-Tuesday, July 28-29, at the Hilton Chicago on Michigan Avenue.

    Representing Chicago's Big Ten Team at the festivities are a trio of Northwestern fifth-year seniors: quarterback Trevor Siemian, safety Ibraheim Campbell and linebacker Collin Ellis. Along with head coach Pat Fitzgerald, the Wildcats contingent is among the 42 student-athletes and 14 head coaches who will convene in the Windy City to preview the upcoming season.

    A limited number of tickets remain available for $110 per seat or $1,100 per table (10 seats). Contact Josh Munk at the Big Ten office at 847-696-1010, ext. 105, or jmunk@bigten.org to purchase tickets.

    The Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon annually attracts some of the most talented names in college sports. The event has drawn legendary coaches as well as each of the conference's Heisman Trophy winners since 1970. In all, more than 850 of the conference's finest players, over 60 head coaches and nearly 50,000 supporters have made the Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon a yearly stop in their preseason college football schedules.
