Day 2 will find speakers from Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, and Wisconsin.

Big Ten football in 2022
This year's Media Days finds a defending football champion other than Ohio State.
Michigan defeated Iowa in last season's Big Ten Championship Game after the Wolverines beat Ohio State and made their first-ever College Football Playoff.
Coming into 2022, Ohio State is once again the favorite to win the Big Ten and contend for a CFP semifinal berth.
Wisconsin won the first two Big Ten title games in 2011 and 2012. Ohio State took five of the next seven before Michigan's victory last season.
Ohio State leads the conference with five championships, followed by Wisconsin and Michigan State with two each. Penn State and Michigan have one each.
Northwestern and Iowa are 0-2 in Big Ten Championship Games, and Nebraska is 0-1. Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Purdue, and Rutgers have not played for the conference championship.
