Franklin said coaches were told earlier this season that Big Ten East schools not playing for the title would receive a home match at Championship Week to balance having to play extra road matches in the nine-game league tables in 2019 and 2021. He has not played in all areas, he is undoubtedly relieved that his team will not have to travel this week.
Franklin said of the schedule: “That was a challenge and I don’t think it’s right, to be honest.” “What I was told a week ago is that Western teams will all come to the East because this is the year to do that, and next year we will have to travel – and then today I heard that this might change, which I don’t think is correct.”
