The Big Ten released its 2020 college football schedule on Tuesday.

The conference-only schedule begins Sept. 3 and concludes with the Big Ten championship game Dec. 5. Each Big Ten team will have two bye weeks built into the schedule to account for possible changes because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The most noticeable item? Michigan will play at Ohio State on Oct. 24 — the eighth week of the proposed schedule. That will be one of the more discussed items if there is a 2020 college football season.

The Big Ten is the second Power 5 conference to release a full schedule with dates for the 2020 season. Here’s a look.
