The pandemic has caused the entire sports world to rethink how they do pretty much everything and college football is no different. With each conference being forced to revise their schedules this season, and mostly focusing on conference play, the Big Ten released its new schedule for each team. The goal is to travel less and in turn create less opportunity for players, coaches and staff to get infected, much like what the MLB is doing.

Let's take a look at the new 2020 football schedule for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

1. Week 1 (9/5) – @ Illinois Fighting Illini

2. Week 2 (9/12) – Rutgers Scarlet Knights

3. Week 3 (9/19) – @ Purdue Boilermakers

4. Week 4 (9/26) – Indiana Hoosiers

5. Week 5 (10/3) – Bye Week

6. Week 6 (10/10) – Nebraska Cornhuskers

7. Week 7 (10/17) – @ Michigan State Spartans

8. Week 8 (10/24) – Michigan Wolverines

9. Week 9 (10/31) – @ Maryland Terrapins

10. Week 10 (11/7) – @ Penn State Nittany Lions

11. Week 11 (11/14) – Bye Week

12. Week 12 (11/21) – Iowa Hawkeyes

It's a pretty easy start for the Buckeyes, with games against perennial Big Ten bottom feeders like Illinois and Rutgers to begin. Things get much tougher after the Week 5 bye, with games against Penn State, Michigan State and Michigan.

The biggest change, of course, is finishing the season against Iowa (another tough team, but usually an easy win for OSU) instead of Michigan. It will be a different feel to the entire season, so I suppose it makes sense.
