The Big Ten Conference has announced its 2017-18 composite schedule, releasing the dates of the Boilermakers' 18-game conference slate.

Ohio State will play the College of Wooster in an exhibition Sunday, Nov. 5 before the season opener at home against Robert Morris on Friday, Nov. 10.

The Iowa women's team will face plenty of early road tests in its Big Ten schedule.

Rounding out the top five in the team balloting were MI and Minnesota. Iowa will host Michigan State, Northwestern, Purdue, and Wisconsin, and travel to Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, and Rutgers.

The Nebraska women's basketball team learned the dates of its 16 conference contests when the Big Ten announced the league-wide schedule live on the Big Ten Network on Wednesday, Aug. 16. Two more home games round out the non-conference schedule, as Minnesota welcomes Florida Atlantic Dec. 23 and Harvard Dec. 30. "With several high-profile opponents who are also coming off NCAA Tournament appearances, we will have a chance to prepare our team for the Big Ten season".

Nebraska had two players named to the preseason All-Big Ten - junior outside hitter Mikaela Foecke and senior setter Kelly Hunter.

In fact, this season will mark the first time in 21 years and only the third time since 1970 that Nebraska has ended the regular season with consecutive conference home games. Wisconsin finishes regular-season play with four of five games at the Kohl Center, wrapping up with the finale on February 25 against Michigan State.

The full season schedule for Northwestern can be found here and for IL here. The conference season will resume on January 2, and conclude on Sunday, Feb. 25. The Hawkeyes will be home for the games on December 2 (Penn State), Jan. 2 (Michigan) and Jan. 4 (Ohio State). Two days later, Northwestern will face defending conference champion Purdue on the road while IL hosts Maryland. Playing such an early Big Ten game will be an adjustment, but getting off to a winning start in conference is critical.

And one week after the Creighton game, the Huskers host Kansas. Both schools have supported a Big Ten measure to create protected rivalries, which would guarantee the teams play twice per season in future years.
