The Big Ten Conference announced its new 2020 fall football schedule on Saturday morning after the announcement earlier this week that they would be returning to action with enhanced COVID-19 protocols. The schedule sees the Michigan Wolverines open their season on Oct. 24 against Minnesota on the road.

The two rivalry contests against Michigan State and Ohio State have been scheduled for Oct. 31 and Dec. 12, respectively with the Big Ten leaving the MSU game as a home date. It was originally scheduled as a road game for Michigan, but was flip-flopped when the revised conference-only schedules came out in August.

Michigan’s crossover games against Wisconsin and Minnesota stay, while the ninth game will see them either in the Big Ten Championship game or playing a game against the team that finished in the same spot in the standings as them in the Big Ten West.

Oct. 24 at Minnesota
Oct. 31 vs. Michigan State
Nov. 7 at Indiana
Nov. 14 vs. Wisconsin
Nov. 21 at Rutgers
Nov. 28 vs. Penn State
Dec. 5 vs. Maryland
Dec. 12 at Ohio State
Dec. 19 — Big Ten Championship/Crossover Week (1v1, 2v2 in standings, etc.)
