The (10-2) Wisconsin Badgers travel to Indianapolis to vie for the Big Ten title against the (10-2) Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday, December 3 (8pm, FOX). It should be a close game — the Badgers lead the nation with 21 interceptions; the Nittany Lions averaged 46.4 points over the last 5 games. And it will be an emotional game. Particularly for Penn State’s wide receiver DeaSean Hamilton who plays for his older brother Darius Hamilton who is autistic. “He’s one of the biggest reasons why I am the person I am today,” say DeaSean. “He’s been able to lead me in the right direction and guide me through life in so many ways many people wouldn’t understand.”

Darius Hamilton cannot communicate verbally; he relies on sign language and gestures. “I know Darius means a lot to him,” says DeaSean’s teammate, sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley, “He [DeaSean] really took care of his brother.” BTN produced a 2-minute video (see below) highlighting the Hamilton brothers’ journey together.
