If you needed a reminder that we're rapidly rocketing towards the 2024 Nebraska football season, then consider the official announcement of Big Ten Media Days on Monday as the big ringing alarm clock.

The most noteworhy part of the official announcment is that an event that has gone two days in years past, will add a third day, in order to account for the four new teams. Oregon, Washington UCLA and USC are headed to Indianapolis for this event for the first time. They'll be spread out over the last two days.

Big Ten Media days this year kick off on July 23 and will feature coaches and players from six teams on that Tuesday. Illinois, Northwestern, Ohio State, Purdue, Rutgers, and Wisconsin will help open up the festivities.

Big Ten commissioner Tony Petitti will also address the media on that first day of the event. One might remember that during last summer's get together, Petitti made it clear he didn't think the Big Ten would expand. Not long after, the Huskies and Ducks were new members.

Big Ten Media days takes up more time in 2024

Matt Rhule and his selection of Nebraska football players will talk to the media on the second day. On July 24, the Huskers, Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State, UCLA and USC will make their appearance.

Big Ten Media Days will then wrap up with Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington on July 25.

Obviously, outside of the coaches, it's not known what players will head to the get together. That sort of thing isn't announced until much closer to the start. Who Matt Rhule chooses to go will certainly be interesting.

Among the attendees last year was short-lived starting quarterback Jeff Sims. Could the media get to know Dylan Raiola a bit better this summer as well?
