The 14 Best Big Ten Fan T-shirts


October 28, 2019

The start of fall means the start of Big 10 football season! Whether you went to a Big 10 school or not, we’re willing to be that there’s at least one team on this list that you can get behind and cheer for. So pick a team and one of these Big 10 fan t-shirts (or a few).

Iowa Hawkeyes

Illinois Fighting Illini

Illinois illini shirtIllinois’ logo went from a decorate chieftain to an innocuous single letter “I,” but true fans stick to the original when they’re rocking the fan gear to a game. Just call it a “throwback” if anyone gives you lip (they won’t).

Michigan State Spartans

Michigan state shirtIt’s hard to think of a more appropriate Big 10 fan t-shirt–Michigan State is notoriously awesome at football and basketball, AKA the only college sports people really care about.

Michigan Wolverines

This school represents the other half of the state of Michigan’s sports fans.

Wisconsin Badgers

There are certainly lesser teams in the Big 10 that would like to take a lesson from good ol’ Bucky.

Minnesota Golden Gophers

Minnesota Golden Gophers

Every team has their own catchphrase, and Minnesota takes it to another level! Their catchphrase happens to be in a whole different language–one that only Golden Gophers can understand.

Purdue Boilermakers

Death by boiling is something that Ancient Greeks were infamous for. Show your savage nature and scare the kids with this Purdue Big 10 fan t-shirt!

Indiana Hoosiers

Indiana Hoosiers shirt

This Big 10 fan t-shirt comes with a mini geography lesson. Purdue fans won’t need it, but maybe the new East coast Big 10 teams will!

Northwestern Wildcats

Has your university been around since 1851? If not, step aside.

Ohio State Buckeyes

Nebraska Cornhuskers

Nebraska CornhuskersNebraska gets slightly politically-charged with this one. Nebraska is new to the Big 10, so we’re still waiting to see how exactly they fit in.

Penn State Nittany Lions

Penn State white out shirt

Or navy. Either would be appropriate. Rock the Penn State look with this Mean Girls quote-inspired fan t-shirt.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Rutgers knights t-shirtThe Rutgers Scarlet Knights obsession with the letter R means that maybe they should have been the Pirates instead. But East Carolina already has that covered…

Maryland Terrapins

Maryland Terrapins shirts“Terps” has to be the best abbreviation for a sport’s team in history. We’re willing to bet you’d wear this shirt even if you don’t go to Maryland (well, maybe).

Are there any other Big 10 football t-shirts you’re planning to rock this football season? We’d love to see how you make these your own! Tell us about your ideas in the comments below.
