Big Ten Announces Conference Football Schedule For 2022-2025

We play Michigan! And Iowa at the end of the season!

Jon Johnston

The Big Ten announced the football schedules for the years 2022-2025, showing that they are ever hopeful that the earth and humanity will still be around by then. They also included Ohio State in the conference schedule for those years, which is a good sign for Buckeye fans given what’s currently happening in the world of Urban Meyer and Zach Smith.

The Big Takeaways:

  • Nebraska plays Michigan from 2022-2025
  • Nebraska and Iowa will permanently play each other at the end of each season on Black Friday
  • Look at the 2022 schedule! Yay!
  • Look at the 2024 schedule! Egad!

Remember that in 2020-2021, Nebraska will play Minnesota to end the season. Fans were not happy with that, so it’s been changed so that we can hate Iowa while trying to burn off massive amounts of wine and turkey leftovers.

Below are the schedules for upcoming years so far away that it’s amazing to me we’re even talking about them, BUT IT’S NEWS WE CAN FREAK ON SO LET’S GO!

(Yes, below is a giant cut and paste from the athletic department.)
