The Big Ten is "strongly considering" doing away with the requirement that schools within its conference schedule games against a Power 5 nonconference team, according to Brett McMurphy of Action Network.
The rule change in consideration would begin in 2024, according to McMurphy. If the change is made, Big Ten schools can still schedule games against Power 5 nonconference opponents, but it wouldn't be required.
The Big Ten began requiring schools within its conference to schedule at least one game against a nonconference Power 5 opponent annually in 2016.
Although that requirement could be removed in 2024, each school within the Big Ten has already scheduled a matchup against a Power 5 nonconference opponent in at least three of the next four seasons, according to McMurphy.
