Big Ten Revises 2021 Football Schedule, Conference Dates Shuffled

The Big Ten has released a revised 2021 football schedule, which will once again feature the customary 12-game slate for all 14 member schools. While the conference dates have been altered, most of the venues have not. Meaning that Ohio State will still be playing at Michigan in 2021 — and they will be doing it the final week of the regular season.

All told, Ohio State will still be playing the same 12 teams they were schedule to play previously, but seven of their nine conference games have been shuffled. The dates for home and away games are the same as well, only the names have changed.

Here is Ohio State’s new schedule with the Big Ten teams from the previous schedule listed in parentheses.

Sept. 2 at Minnesota (no change)
Sept. 11 Oregon (no change)
Sept. 18 Tulsa (no change)
Sept. 25 Akron (no change)
Oct. 2 at Rutgers (at Nebraska)
Oct. 9 Maryland (Purdue)
Oct. 16 OFF (no change)
Oct. 23 at Indiana (at Rutgers)
Oct. 30 Penn State (Michigan State)
Nov. 6 at Nebraska (at Indiana)
Nov. 13 Purdue (Maryland)
Nov. 20 Michigan State (Penn State)
Nov. 27 at Michigan (no change)
Dec. 4 Big Ten Championship Game

    Would it be asking too much to put some extra bye weeks in there for make up games.

    Do the current COVID rules still apply for next year, or is there talk of amending them?
