Over the last few days, the Big Ten has announced a number of significant scheduling reconfigurations. These are all due to COVID-19 concerns, postponements, and teams pausing activities. We will continue to try and update this as more comes out, but here are some of the biggest highlights:

  • Nebraska pauses all team activities. All games through (at least) January 16th postponed;
  • Michigan State at Iowa game on January 14th postponed;
  • Nebraska at Maryland on January 16th postponed;
  • Iowa at Northwestern moved from January 18th to January 17th;
  • Penn State at Illinois moved to January 19th;
  • Purdue at Ohio State rescheduled from January 27th to January 19th;
  • Rutgers at Penn State rescheduled to January 21st;
  • Wisconsin at Penn State rescheduled to January 27th;

Obviously, that’s a lot of movement and it seems clear from the various press releases that there will be more to come. But in a season like this, it’s to be expected. Let’s hope everyone can stay healthy and safe.
