The Big Ten Network will announce the conference's divisional alignment tonight at 7 p.m., and 97.1 The Fan radio station is reporting that Ohio State and Michigan will be in different divisions but play the final week of the regular season.
OSU athletics director Gene Smith would not confirm or deny that when contacted, saying he was keeping a promise to keep silent about the matter.
An uproar erupted two weeks ago when top officials from Ohio State and Michigan expressed open-mindedness about changing the arch-rivals' matchup from its traditional final weekend spot. Smith received 1,200 emails, most of which were strongly opposed to the change.
The schools have played the final weekend of the their regular seasons since 1935.
