Michigan and Ohio State issued a joint statement that said the schools estimate that together they will save more than $250,000 per year.

In a separate announcement, Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said that the move will save his department up to $200,000.

In February, Major League Baseball stopped printing the green and red guides to the National and American leagues. A pdf version was made available to media.
