“Starting the year at home 3 of the first four weekends will be great for our fans, especially finishing with Indiana, who is a traditional power in the Big 10,” Meade said. “It will be fun to watch our group compete starting on February 18, and hopefully, the challenges that lie ahead after setting us on a path to have a tremendous 2022.” ”
