When the Big 10 released their 2020 football schedule for the last time in the middle of September, Ohio State came out in a pretty good position. Nebraska on the other hand got a very difficult schedule. Some feel Nebraska’s tough schedule was punishment for the university openly being upset with the Big 10 over cancelling their Fall football season. They travel to Ohio State, play Wisconsin at home, travel to Northwestern and then have Penn State at home, not the easiest way to start a season. Ohio State is considered the favorite in the conference with the coaching staff and depth on their roster. Every team plays everyone in their division and then 2 games outside of their division.
