Big Ten releases inaugural hockey schdule; Ohio State to face off with Michigan

USA TODAY Sports

Big Ten hockey play gets underway with one of the greatest rivalries in all of college sports.

Ohio State men's hockey enters a bold new era in 2013-2014 when they officially begin conference play in the inaugural season of the Big Ten. The Buckeyes will be joined by Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Penn State, and Wisconsin. Each of the schools will play 20 conference games.

The Buckeyes' first ever game in the new league (and under new head coach Steve Rohlik) will come in Ann Arbor against arch rival Michigan, November 29th, one day before the two schools meet in football. The Buckeyes and Wolverines meet again Monday, December 2nd in Columbus, Friday, February 28 in Ann Arbor, and again either Sunday or Monday, March 2 or 3, at home against the Wolverines.

Even though this is the inaugural season for the new Big Ten hockey conference, it is not the first time the league has sponsored an official championship. From 1958-59 through 1980-81, the Big Ten schools that sponsored hockey competed for Big Ten titles within their larger affiliation with the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA).

The league's first ever post season tournament will happen March 20-22, 2014 at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Here's the league's inaugural slate:
