NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Illinois Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten conference is announcing their football schedule on Saturday morning per a release from FOX Sports. So far, Wisconsin is opening the season on October 24th against the Illinois Fighting Illini. Here is the rest of the schedule that we know:

Week 1, 10/24 - vs. Illinois
Week 2, 10/31 - at Nebraska
Week 3, 11/7 - vs. Purdue
Week 4, 11/14 - at Michigan
Week 5, 11/21 - at Northwestern
Week 6, 11/28 - vs. Minnesota
Week 7, 12/5 - vs. Indiana
Week 8, 12/12 - at Iowa

The Badgers will be playing all of the members of the B1G West and then a pair of crossover games against East teams. We know that the Michigan Wolverines will be one of those opponents and we are still waiting for the other one.

It is noteworthy that the location of some games have been switched and, according to Scott Dochterman of The Athletic, will be adjusted for future matchups.

We will continue updating this post as more games are announced throughout the morning. The last week of the regular season should be pretty fun. The Game, $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy, Heartland Trophy, HAT HAT HAT, Old Oaken Bucket, Land Grant Trophy and, uh, whatever Rutgers/Maryland is.
