The head coaches in the Big Ten have voted in favor of going to a 20-game conference schedule, multiple sources told FanRag Sports on Sunday.

The shift is expected to begin during the 2018-19 season.

FanRag Sports reported on Aug. 22 that programs in the league were told to be “prepared” for the change a year from now.

“It’s going to happen,” one source told FanRag Sports. “They’re going to go to 20 games.”

The ACC announced last July that it will go to 20 conference games during the 2019-20 season.

Big Ten Media Day is Thursday at Madison Square Garden.
