2023 Big Ten football schedule to be released on Wednesday

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2023 Big Ten football schedule will be announced on Wednesday, October 26, at noon ET, the conference has announced.

The Big Ten previously released their future football schedules through the 2025 season, but those schedules had to be scrapped after changes were made to some of the slates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Big Ten will again play a nine-game conference schedule with three non-conference contests. Barring any late changes, all three non-conference opponents for every Big Ten school in 2023 have already been released and/or reported.

The East-West divisional structure of the Big Ten will also reportedly remain for the 2023 season, per Scott Dochterman of The Athletic. A new model will then be configured when the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans each join the conference beginning with the 2024 season.

Featured non-conference matchups during Week 1 of the 2023 season include East Carolina at Michigan and West Virginia at Penn State. Big Ten teams that will likely open the season against a conference opponent include Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, and Rutgers.

The 2023 Big Ten Championship Game will likely be played on Saturday, Dec. 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
