Fan Noah Weiss has carried his trademark hardhat and dance through his time as a student at both the University of Nebraska and Northwestern University. Dubbed a ‘superfan’, Noah has attended nearly all home men’s and women’s basketball games at Nebraska and Northwestern since his Freshman year in Lincoln, becoming an iconic figure that everyone looks forward to seeing- not just as at games, but all around the community-all while dealing with Aspergers Syndrome.

About: Heather Blackmon-doForno

As a member of the Ohio State University Marching Band, I quickly grew to appreciate the dedication and pride each Big Ten Marching Band exhibits, as well as the traditions, history and culture of each school they represent. Being a passionate world traveler, my trips to Big Ten schools have always involved an effort to go beyond the game, scoping out the best local places to eat, delving into local history, viewing the campus architecture and learning about quirky folklore.
