The latest Big Ten football schedule was released Saturday morning on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff.

The Nebraska-Iowa game is back on Thanksgiving weekend.

Every team has eight scheduled games through December 12. On the weekend of December 18 and 19, the conference championship game will be played as well as an extra crossover game between teams finishing in similar positions in each division.
