Michigan, Ohio State on tap for Gophers in new 2015 Big Ten schedule

Michigan, Ohio State on tap for Gophers in new 2015 Big Ten schedule

Just like in 2014, the Minnesota Gophers football faces a daunting slate of games in the Big Ten's revised 2015 schedule.

Three weeks after releasing its 2014 edition, the Big Ten unveiled its 2015 conference schedule on Monday, which has the Gophers lined up to face top-tier East division foes Michigan and Ohio State.

While the Big Ten's new West and East division split separates the Gophers a bit from some of the conference's more formidable teams, their first two years in the new system worked out to be about as grueling as possible.

Apart from its yearly six games against fellow West division opponents, the Gophers will visit Michigan and host Ohio State in 2014. That set-up reverses in 2015, with Minnesota taking on the Wolverines on Oct. 31 at TCF Bank Stadium before traveling to Columbus on Nov. 7.

Under the new schedule, the Gophers won't play either of the Big Ten's newest teams -- Rutgers and Maryland -- until at least 2016.
