CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Due to impending inclement weather, schedule changes will be made to Wednesday's four quarterfinal games of the Big Ten Tournament. All games on Wednesday (Nov. 6) will be moved to the two Campus Recreation turf soccer fields at the corner of First Street and Stadium Drive on the University of Illinois' campus.
Two sessions of simultaneous games will be played at 2:30 p.m. ET (#3 Penn State vs. #6 Wisconsin and #2 Michigan vs. #7 Iowa) and 5:30 p.m. ET (#1 Nebraska vs. #8 Minnesota and #4 Indiana vs. #5 Illinois). The remaining tournament schedule on Friday and Sunday will be played as planned at the Illinois Soccer Stadium.
