B1G football: Conference officially unveils revised 2021 football schedule
With the 2020 season behind us, teams are entering the offseason with a focus on the 2021 season.
Due to the pandemic, the 2020 college football slate was unlike any other, and that was especially evident in the B1G. The B1G was among the conferences that elected on a conference-only schedule with an eight games plus-one set up.
Heading into 2021, the conference is anticipating a return to normalcy. That includes nine conference games with the opponents remaining the same as originally scheduled.
What may have changed for some teams are the dates and locations for some matchups. For now, the Week 0 matchup between Nebraska and Illinois is still slated to be played in Dublin, Ireland.
The conclusion of the season is set for Dec. 4 with the B1G Championship Game in Indianapolis. Here is a snapshot of the full schedule below:
Let the countdown begin. 🙌
