So week of December 20th, Big Ten teams are supposed to play their 9th game which will be a cross over the same week as BTT game.

Even though we aren't out of West Contention, here are possible matchups.

OSU - Unlikely
Indiana - Unlikely

Maryland - Would be a rematch, so unlikely
Rutgers - May start to suck the rest of the season
Michigan - Would be a rematch, so unlikely
Michigan St - Good possibility
Penn St - Will they leapfrog someone?

If Minnesota / WI gets cancelled, and we actually beat NW and / or Nebby, I could see a reschedule game for the Axe on that date.

Right now we would see Rutgers and Nebraska would see Michigan state

Ah, so I was close...
I’d only assume because Rutgers beat Michigan state head to head.

right now Michigan state is the number 6 in the East and Nebraska is in the west.

but they won’t want Nebraska and penn state to play again

Unless I missed something, the games will be Saturday, Dec 19. Where have you seen/heard the B1G would be rescheduling canceled games?

Nowhere. It is speculation.

it would make sense to play division and rivalry games that were missed due to cancelation rather than 2-7 crossovers though.

for instance....
Wisconsin vs Purdue and Michigan state vs Maryland are probably more important to play than Wisconsin vs Maryland and Michigan state vs Purdue

I think Penn St will beat both Mich St and Rutgers, and Michigan. So I could see us get a repeat of "the game" from last year.

No where.
I'm just using the "what would I do" part of my brain.

I thought these matchups were strictly based on standings, whether repeat or not. Is that wrong?

Yes, that's wrong. Obviously, 1 v. 1 will be the championship game, even if it's a repeat. After that, they will try to avoid repeats. I don't think they have published criteria for that, but they hope to avoid teams playing twice.
