UPDATE 11:00 a.m. Here’s the entire 2020 Big Ten football schedule as a grid.
The Big Ten Conference announced today the schedule for the 2020 football season, including an eight-game Conference-only schedule starting the weekend of October 24 plus a ninth game for all 14 teams during a newly created Big Ten Champions Week the weekend of December 19. pic.twitter.com/jaDXMhh2C8— Big Ten Conference (@bigten) September 19, 2020
Developing: The Big Ten is releasing their 2020 college football schedule right now as we type this. Here’s the bad news: They’re doing it week-by-week live on television and are dragging this out as much as possible.
But truthfully, why should we expect anything else besides a terrible communications strategy from the B1G this season?
If the goal is to have as many eyeballs on Fox’s college football pregame show, it’s clearly working. As a ploy to get people away from College GameDay on ESPN, which is canon for so many of the weirdos that follow this sport, this is effective. But it also means people are going to be frustrated as this takes over an hour to find our where teams are playing this season.
We’ll add whatever we see here as soon as we see it.
Here is the Week 1 Big Ten football schedule:
