2014-15 Big Ten Opponents Set
Feb. 28, 2014
The Big Ten Conference announced the Big Ten opponents for the 2014-15 men's basketball schedule on Friday afternoon.
The 14 Big Ten teams will compete in an 18-game conference schedule, playing five teams both home and away and eight teams once. Each team will play four of its single-play opponents at home and four on the road.
The new format, which was created for the 14-team league with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers for the 2014-15 season, features a three-year cycle where every team will have at least one home-and-home series with all 13 conference opponents.
Next season, the Illini will face Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern and Purdue in home-and-home matchups. Illinois' single-play home matchups include Indiana, Maryland, Penn State and Rutgers, while the Orange and Blue will travel to Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio State and Wisconsin without a return game.
Dates, times and television information will be announced at a later date.
