The Big Ten unveiled its schedule, which includes a ninth game, a cross-divisional matchup to be determined, on Sept. 19, three days after it announced its intention to reverse course and play a fall season. Further information regarding start times and television coverage for the remainder of the schedule will be announced by the Big Ten in the coming weeks.

The Big Ten does not plan to have fans in stands, unlike the other Power 5 conferences currently playing: the Atlantic Coastal Conference, Southeastern Conference and Big 12.
