The Big Ten just made a drastic scheduling change for next season

Except for about three other schools.

The Big Ten is going to embrace "Friday Nights Lights" starting next season. The league's new television agreements with ESPN/ABC and Fox will include a package of six prime-time Friday games starting in 2017, Commissioner Jim Delany told the Chicago Tribune on Wednesday.

However, Delany says he won't ask schools with bigger seating capacities like Penn State or Ohio State. Michigan has straight up told the conference no for both home and away games. The commissioner also said there will be three conference games and three non-league games in September and October while no team will play more than twice.

This is a pretty questionable decision considering the logistical issues like kids missing classes on Fridays and Thursdays in order to travel. There's also high school football to contend with as well as people who actually enjoy going out on Friday evenings. So basically, it would be a ratings nightmare.

Would you watch a Rutgers vs Purdue on a Saturday? Then why would anyone watch it on a Friday night?
