The rivals met only once last year, with MSU pulling out an 89-73 win in Ann Arbor, but will return to a home-and-home format this time around. Because the conference now includes 14 teams and an 18-game league schedule, it's not guaranteed MSU will play MU or anyone else twice in a given season.
Here is Michigan State's lineup for 2016-17, courtesy of NBCSports.com:
Home/Away: Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Purdue
Home only: Iowa, Northwestern, Rutgers, Wisconsin
Away only: Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Penn State
Dates and times for the games are still TBD.
