“Big Ten Conference Prepares for Divisional Changes as New Season Kicks Off”
Point 1: The Big Ten Conference has seen a divisional imbalance, with the East Division dominating conference championships and College Football Playoff appearances, while the West Division has seen more competitive balance with four different winners in the past four years. This season presents a unique opportunity for teams in the West Division to make their mark before the divisional format disappears next year.
Point 2: Ohio State coach Ryan Day has named Kyle McCord as the starting quarterback for the No. 3 Buckeyes’ season opener against Indiana. The decision comes after a close competition with Devin Brown, with McCord ultimately earning the nod due to his experience as a third-year player. Both quarterbacks are expected to see playing time in the opener.
