The Big Ten is prepared for a situation in which its teams haven’t played an equal amount of games at the end of the year.

With Wisconsin-Nebraska already canceled — and more cancelations likely to come later in the year — here’s how the Big Ten is planning to determine division winners for an uneven amount of games played.

Minimum Criteria

Teams are required to play at least six of the eight games in order to qualify for a division title. There is an exception — if the average number of games played drops below eight, then to qualify a team would have to play at least two games less than the average.

So if the average games played drops to seven, the minimum number of games to be considered for a division title becomes five.
