I was watching this first half shut-out between Michigan and Ohio and on the field there is B I G painted on the field. The paint is white, the B is just outlined while the I G is solid white.

What is this meant to represent?

This is the logo of the Big Ten Conference of which both Michigan State and Ohio are members; the branding has the "B" in a different style from the "I"/"1" and the "G".

    B1G also does double duty as "B 10". Adding the reason for the stylization differences would improve this answer.
