Illinois’ redemption tour in the Big Ten will open this December against Rutgers.
The Big Ten revealed its entire conference schedule for the 2021-22 season on Wednesday afternoon.
Here’s what the Illini’s looks like (including the non-conference games).

The Illini have a stretch there from late January through the end of February with just three home games, but it'll definitely be nice to finish it with some home-cooking against Penn State and Iowa.
An interesting note from the athletic department, but Illinois does not have a Saturday home game in conference play, which is a little disappointing because there is nothing like a mid-afternoon Saturday tip.
Illinois’ women’s basketball’s conference schedule was also released Wednesday.
