Big Ten Media Days provides the launching point toward the football season and college sports year. So when the league announces who will attend the two-day session in Chicago, it attracts attention.

Iowa, which won the Big Ten West Division crown in 2015, will bring All-American cornerback Desmond King, quarterback C.J. Beathard and linebacker Josey Jewell to the event on July 25-26 at Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. It’s interesting that Jewell will attend considering he is a junior. Iowa generally only brings seniors.

For non-media types, the luncheon on July 26 luncheon is the higlight. Autograph sessions begin at 10 a.m. with the luncheon starting at 11:30 a.m. Tickets cost $110 per seat or $1,100 per table (10 seats). Call Davon Robb at the Big Ten office at 847-696-1010, ext. 163, or email drobb@bigten.org for information.
