Big Ten football schedule: TV coverage for every Week 8 game as conference returns to play

The Big Ten this week will become the fourth Power 5 conference to return to the football field in 2020.

The conference on Aug. 11 postponed its season till the spring amid the COVID-19 pandemic, later reversing its decision and settling on an Oct. 24 start date. That said, the conference still starts its 2020 campaign several weeks after the respective seasons of the ACC, Big 12 and SEC. It has been a long wait for fans: The last game involving a Big Ten team came on Jan. 2 — a 23-22 loss by Indiana to Tennessee in the Gator Bowl.

That said, the conference’s opening slate of games is a little lacking in national appeal outside, perhaps, the ranked “GameDay” matchup between No. 18 Michigan and No. 21 Minnesota in Minneapolis. There’s also fifth-ranked Ohio State, which should be a strong contender for the College Football Playoff, even with a shortened season. The Buckeyes open the season against Nebraska.

Below is everything you need to watch the full Big Ten slate in Week 8, including time and TV channel for every game:
