Four men’s games in November will potentially be added to the schedule at a later date, including Troy at Indiana, Jacksonville State at Purdue, Yale at Penn State and South Dakota State at Indiana.
A couple of thoughts:
- Who in their right mind schedules Indiana-Purdue in the middle of a Saturday afternoon?
- Finishing at home against Rutgers is a great gift if we need to win for the Big Ten title.
- We have only one weeknight 9pm ET conference game and that is at Iowa in March. Not bad.
- The game at Ohio gets an ESPN2 slot. Nice!
