Following the announcement on Wednesday that the Big Ten football conference will have a 2020 season this fall, Michigan State's new season schedule was released featuring various marquee matchups. 

The schedule consists of an eight-game slate of conference-only games and no kickoff times have been announced yet.

Michigan State finished 7-6 last season and topped it off with a 27-21 victory over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. They head into this season with hopes to compete for a Big Ten championship under first-year head coach Mel Tucker.

As part of the Big Ten East, Michigan State has to play some known powerhouse programs in Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan. While they head on the road to take on Michigan (Oct. 31) and Penn State (Dec. 12), they will host the Ohio State Buckeyes on Dec. 5 in what could be a huge opportunity for the Spartans to pull off a statement win.

The Big Ten will require student-athletes, coaches, trainers, and anyone else involved in the program to undergo daily testing to ensure everyone's safety. These tests will need to be completed before every practice or game. 

Michigan State opens up the season taking on Rutgers at home on October 24.
