Big Ten's 2015 schedule unveiled

By Brian Bennett

The Big Ten has released its conference schedule for 2015, and if you've already studied the 2014 schedule, you shouldn't be too surprised. Each teams' opponents -- including crossover games -- remains the same, while the home and road games are reversed from '14. The full 2015 conference schedule is here.

As a reminder, 2015 is the final season of eight conference games before the Big Ten switches to a nine-game league schedule in 2016. As such, the schedules may go through some more adjustments in '16.

So here's what the crossover games will look like in 2015:

East Division

Indiana: at Purdue (protected), vs. Iowa
Maryland: at Iowa, vs. Wisconsin
Michigan: at Minnesota, vs. Northwestern
Michigan State: at Nebraska, vs. Purdue
Ohio State: at Illinois, vs. Minnesota
Penn State: at Northwestern, vs. Illinois
Rutgers: vs. Nebraska, at Wisconsin

West Division

Illinois: vs. Ohio State, at Penn State
Iowa: at Indiana, vs. Maryland
Minnesota: vs. Michigan, at Ohio State
Nebraska: vs. Michigan State, at Rutgers
Northwestern: vs. Penn State, at Michigan
Purdue: vs. Indiana (protected), at Michigan State
Wisconsin: at Maryland, vs. Rutgers

Some thoughts:
There's nothing really controversial about this schedule that's any different from the 2014 slate. The real fun will be in seeing how the first nine-game schedule sets up in 2016.
