Illinois @ Michigan Mar 2nd
MSU @ Michigan Mar 4th
So the Iowa game is being moved obviously. Not sure anything else as of right now.
Glad the Iowa and Illinois games aren’t quick turnarounds.
That would put them at 17 correct?? It’s a cramped schedule but I can’t imagine the conference would like an odd number of games compared to even for everyone else??
Why does odd versus even matter?
