Big Ten releases full 2020 football schedule

The Big Ten released its full 2020 football schedule Saturday.

The conference-only slate will begin the week of Oct. 24 with the championship game scheduled for Dec. 19 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis – one day before the College Football Playoff’s Selection Day. All times are to be determined.

Ohio State, which won the Big Ten in each of the last three seasons, will host Nebraska in its season opener.

The Buckeyes also host “The Game” against Michigan on Dec. 12.

The Big Ten changed course this week and decided to play football in 2020 after postponing its fall campaign in August due to COVID-19 concerns.

The conference’s testing protocols include daily rapid testing beginning Sept. 30. Players who test positive for the virus must wait 21 days to return. Teams with a positivity testing rate of over 5% will have to pause activities for at least a week.
