There’s no question that Nebraska and Ohio State were the driving forces behind bringing B1G football back this fall. Players, coaches, parents and administrators were vocal about wanting to play at some point in 2020.

On Wednesday, the B1G reversed course, announcing it would implement an eight-game schedule which would begin the weekend of Oct. 23-24. Saturday morning, the conference revealed the full schedule for the fall.

Week 1, the two teams receiving the most credit for reinstating B1G football this fall will be squaring off. Nebraska will travel to Ohio State to open the 2020 campaign.
