The Big Ten Conference released its revised 2020 fall football schedule Wednesday morning.

We already knew Illinois’ non-conference games, including the highly anticipated matchup against Illinois State, are off the schedule here in 2020. But now we know the games Illinois will play.

The Big Ten is pushing forward for now to start during the week of Sept. 3.

Illinois opens the season against Ohio State on Thursday, Sept. 3 — the very first game of Big Ten’s season.

Illinois then heads on the road to Nebraska and Indiana before returning home to play Purdue. Before a bye week, Illinois has Iowa (home), Northwestern and Wisconsin (road) and a home matchup against Minnesota on Halloween. Illinois closes the season with Rutgers (road), a bye week, and a home game against Penn State, scheduled for Nov. 14.

The SEC and Pac-12 have already decided on Sept. 26 starts to the season. The ACC plans on starting its season a few weeks early during the week of Sept. 7, while the Big 12 is planning on mid-to-late September.
