Big Ten Football Schedule Expands In 2009

Last updated on Wednesday, December 12, 2007

(UNDATED) - The annual battle for the old oaken bucket could become a post-thanksgiving tradition beginning in 2009.

The Big Ten will move to a 13-week schedule the season after next, extending the season to the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Since the NCAA adopted a twelve-game schedule in 2006, several coaches in the Big Ten have lobbied for a bye week.

The adoption of the 13-week schedule will allow teams to have that week off during the 12-game regular season.
