The league is expected to announce that it will split into two six-team divisions; Nebraska, the newest member of the conference, will go into Michigan's division.

According to ESPN the divisions will consist of:

•Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern and Minnesota.

Michigan and Ohio State will play in the season finale, according to Michigan.rivals.com, and could meet again in the conference championship game if each wins its division.

If it isn't broke , don't try and fix it. The Rivilry has been doing great, without some revenue stream mongers trying to screw up a tradition for the sake of their backpockets.
Let it the bleep alone.
