On Friday, the Big Ten released the 2021 football schedule and it finally looks like things might actually be getting back to somewhat of a "normal" season.

Last college football season was anything from normal, with several games being cancelled or postponed within the Big Ten as well as nationwide.  So, with any luck, this season might actually be played in full.

The season kicks off on August 28th, with Illinois hosting Nebraska, but that is the only game played by Big Ten teams that week.  The big opening weekend for the Big Ten will be September 4th, where Michigan takes on Western Michigan at home and Michigan State plays at Northwestern.  You can see the full U of M and MSU schedules below.
