Big Ten athletic directors and coaches met Monday to discuss football-related topics. Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman says there will be more meetings as part of a process to make a proposal for the Council of Presidents/Chancellors to review in June.
The Big Ten is preparing for its new-look football schedules — with nine or 10 conference games — after Maryland and Rutgers join in 2014. Big Ten schools will have three, or two, nonconference games to schedule each year.
