Big Ten might let schools slide on playing Power 5 opponent

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (AP) -

Big Ten schools can petition the conference to waive a requirement in the new football scheduling policy that teams must play one nonconference game against an opponent from one of the other five most powerful leagues.
   Associate commissioner Scott Chipman said Tuesday conference officials would decide on a case-by-case basis.
   Commissioner Jim Delany in July unveiled the new scheduling model that has each school playing one game against a team from the Atlantic Coast, Southeastern, Big 12 or Pacific-12 conferences or a major independent.
   The Indianapolis Star reports that since the new policy was announced, Indiana has received permission from the conference to count games against Connecticut in 2019 and 2020 and Cincinnati in 2021 and 2022 as Power Five opponents.
