Wow, 6 of the first 7 games are on the road!
Don't think so. Read it left to right and top to bottom. White is home. Blue is on the road.

So 3 of the first 7 are on the road.

A little bummed we only get Iowa once. Guess we'll just have to make do with one Illini win/Fran McCaffrey meltdown combo this regular season.

First glance looks like a favorable B1G schedule, but as a fan I'd like to see Mich. St. and Iowa twice

First glance I say roughly 20-6 (5-1/15-5)...and I think I’m being fairly conservative.

I really think we could more like 22-4

Yep, Iowa, Michigan and Michigan State only once. We’ll have to make those games count.

Looks like Dec 5th has a game vs TBA
Really curious about what they'll do with that game. It's the only one between the Baylor and Duke matchups. Do we give our team a chance to breathe, or do we schedule another killer in that slot and set up an early season stress test for ourselves?

Puts them on a good path to win the B10 title, but if they can't make those few big games count it'll be trouble for the NET ranking I imagine.

If we win the B1G title then I am not worried about NET.

It looks like the non-con games are already assigned a network (for the most part). Any idea when we will know the network schedule for conference games?
I’m hoping we don’t have too many games relegated to BTN2Go.

Might actually get some of those Saturday CBS games for once

Interesting that we only have 2 Sunday games this year (6 last year), only 1 Friday game (Thank Gosh) 9 Saturday games (perfect)

Why the Big Ten didn’t make the two best teams play twice is beyond me. Really missed out on having another national prime time game

5 game stretch from late Jan to mid Feb will be our toughest and have a major influence on determining how successful this season will be

@Michigsn State
Iowa
@Idiana
Wisconsin
@Michigan

This schedule makes no sense. First and foremost why don't they play every team twice? Even in a normal year they should play every team twice.
