While the focus for most around Big Ten country is on the gridiron, there are more sports getting ready for season’s to start. In fact, one of the most successful fall sports in the Big Ten is that of men’s and women’s soccer.
One great fan decided it would be fun to mock-up uniforms, complete with sponsors, for all 14 Big Ten universities.
Here’s a look at the 14 logos:

You can see the complete mock ups via the fan’s imgur page, which can be found here.
One thing that jumps out is the use of sponsorship on the kits, something common across all professional soccer leagues, but something not happening in college sports. Could that type of sponsorship happen to help save these sports in the coming years of change within the “Power 5” conferences?
Personally I love the Iowa Hawkeyes and Maryland Terrapins jersey designs. Minnesota isn’t too bad either, but the ultimate winner in my book is Northwestern, who have a classic and clean look to its design and it doesn’t feel like “trying to hard” if you know what I mean?
