The much anticipated return of B1G football arrives tonight, as Wisconsin hosts Illinois at 7 p.m. (CST) on the Big Ten Network.

In celebration of the conference’s opening weekend, the network released an epic trailer previewing the season.

Simply awesome. That has to give B1G fans from every team goosebumps.

There’s nothing quite like the optimism of Week 1, but especially this season given the late start due to COVID-19 concerns and the possibility that football could’ve been cancelled in 2020.

The atmosphere and pageantry won’t be the same because of safety protocols but that won’t change the intensity displayed by B1G teams this season as they vie for the conference crown.

Welcome back B1G and here’s to an amazing season.
