Big Ten releases Illinois’ 2018-19 Big Ten opponents

Not bad.

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Next season is the first year of a 20-game conference schedule for the Big Ten, and Illinois’ opponents were released on Thursday afternoon.

As pointed out, Illinois will have home and homes versus:

  • Indiana
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • Northwestern
  • Ohio State
  • Penn State
  • Wisconsin

Ohio State was the only team in there that made the NCAA Tournament in 2018. (Not bad.)

The Illini’s away matches are against:

  • Iowa
  • Maryland
  • Purdue

That’s a little rougher.

Illinois will only see these teams at home:

  • Michigan
  • Michigan State
  • Rutgers

We can live with that.

What do you think of the 2018-19 conference slate?
