Big Ten preseason camp dates

6/30/2013

It's the first day of July, which means the college football season is less than two months away! If you haven't started your countdown, get to it. This thing is getting real.

To get you more excited for the season -- if that's even possible -- I've compiled a list of the key dates for preseason camps around the Big Ten. The league's preseason media days, by the way, take place July 24-25 in Chicago.
