Program areas at B1G

The Conference collects revenue on behalf of the member schools from football and basketball television contracts, bowl games, football championship game, and basketball tournaments, as well as grants from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and remits the revenue to the member schools' athletic department.
Programming Initiatives - The Conference partners with broadcast partner, Big Ten Network, to provide additional linear events broadcast on BTN to expand coverage across all Conference sports. Additionally, in partnership with BTN, the Conference creates programming highlighting non-athletic achievement at each of its 14 member institutions.
Officiating - The Conference provides neutral third-party officials for several conference-sponsored sports (baseball, basketball, field hockey, football, volleyball, men's soccer, women's soccer, women's lacrosse, softball, wrestling and ice hockey); oversees management of the officiating program (e.g., assigning officials, finance administration, etc.); and administers annual clinics, rule reviews, and other programs designed to enhance the skills of participating officials.
