How’s this for a paradigm shift in Big Ten football? Minnesota has won straight three conference games and is favored, ever so slightly, to beat Penn State.
Sid Hartman talked with University of Minnesota Athletics Director Norwood Teague Wednesday morning on the WCCO Morning News. Teague discussed plans for improving Athletic department facilities.
When the Big Ten grows to 14 teams, the conference’s longtime football powers will literally be out of Minnesota’s half of the league. But the Gophers didn’t get any breaks on the upcoming schedules. In 2014 and 2015, when Maryland and Rutgers are added to the East, teams will only play two out-of-division opponents. Well, Minnesota drew Michigan and Ohio State for those two foes. In 2016, the Big Ten goes to nine-game conference schedules.
When talking Gopher rivals at the University of Minnesota campus, Wisconsin and Iowa top the list.
