New Big Ten Hoops Scheduling Format To Allow For Rivals To Play Twice A Year
College Basketball season is around the corner. One rivalry that should have two games a season is Michigan and Michigan State. A new scheduling format will make sure this rivalry and others will happen twice a season.
According to the story at M-Live, in state rivals will play two conference games every year beginning next season 2018-2019.
So rivalry games like Michigan-Michigan State, Indiana-Purdue and Illinois- Northwestern will have two games, unlike the past few years that could see these rivalries only have one game.
Michigan and Michigan State only play once this upcoming season. The change will see the current schedule move to 20 games in conference. The scheduling will also weigh regional opponents allowing for more games against teams close their campuses.
A good change but unfortunately it will not be until next season.
