The Big Ten released the schedule for the 2020 football season, beginning with IU playing Penn State at home on Oct. 24.

The schedule was unveiled week by week Saturday on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff.

IU will play four home games and four road games in the first eight weeks of the season. Week nine will be a crossover game between the two divisions, determined by seeding after week eight.

Week two, IU will travel to Piscataway, New Jersey, on Oct. 31 to play Rutgers. IU plays Michigan at home Nov. 7, then at Michigan State Nov. 14. 

In week five, IU travels to Ohio State, then plays host to Maryland for week six on Nov. 28. On Dec. 5, IU will play at Wisconsin.

The final game of the eight-game slate will be at home against Purdue on Dec. 12 in the Old Oaken Bucket game. 

The ninth week game, which will include the Big Ten Championship game, will take place on Dec. 19, allowing the conference to be eligible for the College Football Playoff.

Fans will not be allowed to attend games this season.
