Conference Struggles with Impending Changes

Since 1943, fans have always known where
to find the annual showdown between Michigan and Ohio State: Right
at the end of the schedule.

With the Big Ten expanding to 12 teams in 2011 and also going to
divisional play and a conference championship game, that sacred
spot is no longer a certainty.

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith says that in the new Big
Ten, Ohio State-Michigan might not be played in November and be the
last regular-season game on each team's schedule.

If Ohio State and Michigan end up in the same division, it would
eliminate the possibility of the Buckeyes and Wolverines playing
for a conference title as they have so many times before. If
they're in opposite divisions, it might diminish their annual
meeting.
