We learned Monday that the Big Ten will increase the number of conference games from eight, to nine or 10, soon after new members Maryland and Rutgers join the league in 2014. The increase likely will happen for the 2016 season.

The policy opposing November night games in the Big Ten appears to be on life-support, as commissioner Jim Delany told ESPN.com that the league "won't stand in the way" if two teams want to play under the lights.

The latest news came courtesy of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, who said Tuesday night that the Big Ten ADs agreed to no longer schedule games against FCS teams. The FCS schedule ban likely will go into full effect by the 2016 season.

Big Ten fans have voiced complaints about all three topics -- not enough league games or November night games, and far too many games against lower-division foes. So which item pleases you the most?

Here's your chance to vote in our poll, and be sure to check in throughout the afternoon and night to see which item is leading.
