On Wednesday, the Big Ten released to conference schedules for the 2022-2025 seasons.

Have a look:

Of note, it’s extremely common to see one Big Ten team play another Big Ten team in the first three weeks of the season. From 2022-2025, only Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State and Iowa appear to not have another Big Ten opponent on their schedule until Week 4.

The other 10 schools in the conference will have a Big Ten matchup within the first three weeks.

Illinois is also unique in the fact that it is the only Big Ten team to play a conference foe in three of those four seasons in the first week of the year (at Wisconsin in 2022, home to Purdue in 2024 and home to Nebraska in 2025).
