Even though we are in the middle of the 2022 Big Ten football season, it’s never too early to think about 2023, especially if you are a fan of teams like Indiana and Northwestern.
And while much of the nonconference football schedule is put in place years in advance, it takes some juggling and work to put together the Big Ten football schedule,
especially since there will be two new teams on the horizon with the addition of USC and UCLA, and coming off of a worldwide pandemic and all of that back in 2020.
The Big just recently announced that it won’t be doing away with divisions next season but will re-visit what the scheduling will look like for 2024 with the expanded conference.
And, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, the conference suits turned on a dime and announced the Big Ten football schedule for 2023.
We’re interested in all of it but more laser-focused on what it means for Ohio State.
What crossover teams and venues will the Buckeyes be looking at, and what kind of road and away mix are we talking about?
