ROSEMONT, Ill. -- The Big Ten Conference announced today (Wednesday, Sept. 16) the return of the 2020 football season this fall. Games will begin starting the weekend of Oct. 23-24.

The eight-game schedule for the University of Michigan and all other Big Ten schools will be set in the near future and announced by the conference.

At this time, due to current state of Michigan public health limitations, the University of Michigan is unable to have fans at home athletic events. Safety regulations will continue to be evaluated by campus leadership in conjunction with medical experts and state/local government officials. We will communicate any changes as they are determined.

The Big Ten also announced an agreement for conference-wide rapid testing starting by Sept. 30. This will allow each school to test student-athletes and staff on a daily basis.

"Great news today," said Jim Harbaugh, J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach, in a statement. "Over the past month, I could sense the anticipation from our players and coaches, and I'm thrilled on their behalf that they will have a chance to play a 2020 season. Stay positive. Test negative. Let's play football."
