Maryland and Michigan State could have stayed home on Saturday night, according to one TV Guide.
SportsChannel8’s Ben Swain posted this screenshot of what looks like DirecTV’s guide that says “if necessary” in the information for the Big Ten East matchup. That is harsh.
“If necessary” is usually reserved for playoff games if a series can be clinched before that game. But the Spartans and Terrapins are a combined 0-5 in Big Ten play, so maybe DirecTV figured they would be better off not playing.
Wow, Big 10. That’s harsh. pic.twitter.com/hRub7P54X6
