With Big Ten conference play tipping off Tuesday night, it’s time to take a look back at the best from an entertaining and successful non-conference season.

Winners and losers of Big Ten hoops' unbalanced schedule

Not all Big Ten conference schedules are created equally. And, that doesn’t make for a fair and level playing field when it comes to crowning a conference champion. But, no one said life is fair.

But as the league has grown, a round-robin schedule hasn’t been possible. Now, with a 14-team conference, Big Ten squads play five teams twice and eight teams once (four home; four road). And, depending on the rise

Merry Christmas! Here's one Big Ten football fact for every bowl
