Big Ten Releases Full 2020 Football Schedule


After initially joining the Pac-12 in scrapping its fall sports season amid continuing COVID concerns, the Big Ten reversed course this week, announcing it would stage an eight-game, conference-only football slate beginning October 24. In addition to the eight-game conference schedule released Saturday, all 14 member schools will compete in the inaugural “Big Ten Champions Week” on December 19 with opponents/matchups to be determined at a later date.

Below you’ll find all games for the upcoming Big Ten football season including pivotal showdowns between Ohio State and Michigan (December 12 at The Horseshoe), Michigan and Michigan State (October 31 in Ann Arbor) and Ohio State/Penn State (October 31 at Happy Valley), among other rivalries. Start times have yet to be announced, though it’s known that Nebraska at Ohio State on October 24 and Michigan at Ohio State on December 12 will both be nationally televised on Fox.
