Sounds like Penn State already knows their changes. Any word on Iowa?

In 2020, the schedules got messed up because the Big Ten's hastily arranged schedule didn't fully account for the regular rotation established 2014-2019.

For example, Nebraska played at Purdue in 2019, and then the Big Ten scheduled Nebraska-Purdue again in West Lafayette in 2020. The 2020 Nebraska-Wisconsin game in Lincoln was canceled because of COVID issues in Madison. So the Nebraska-Purdue game for 2021 was switched to Lincoln instead of playing a third straight year in West Lafayette. To balance the 2021 schedule, the Nebraska-Wisconsin game (originally scheduled for Lincoln) was moved to Madison. This just makes up for the switch from last year.

In the East, there were a couple of games involving Indiana that were affected similarly because of the hastily arranged 2020 COVID schedule.

So other than a non-con for Minny, it looks like the Black Friday game is the only Friday game? Locksley bitched enough to get rid of those?

I had the same thought. But, they announced in late May that Iowa-Maryland was a Friday game. I am guessing this is the schedule until they decide to change it.

Nebby and Minny have apretty easy schedule. This should be interesting
Just looking at the West.
Purdue- has the easiest cross over with PSU home @MD & IU and maybe most friendly overall. Week 1 vs PSU could set the tone for them if they win.
Nebby- benefits by only playing 4 true road games with game in Dublin counting as NW home game. 4 toughest at back end of the schedule. Still expect them to lose a couple before in typical Frost fashion. Have toughest non conf game with OU.
Minny- Think the opposite they have a tough schedule with road games in tough environments with 2 cross over @MSU/PSU along with trips to Madison & Lincoln. I thought Iowa playing them in late Sept. originally would be beneficial with lot of new faces for Minny on D and whole new OL.
ILL- Interesting first game week 0 with WY. Be very interesting to see where they are after first 3 weeks with @IU & UVA.
Wisconsin- Tough cross over @OSU (new protected cross over from the East) & MSU. Maybe toughest road schedule with games in IC, Lincoln & Evanston. jNW has been a thorn in their side too.
Iowa- Think we are in the middle. Good mix of games on road and home. @OSU, Mich/Wisc at home. Schedule sets up nicely and expectations should be of at least 5-1 before the bye. Benefit by having first 2 road games in non hostile stadiums with Rutgers (sorry mrs screw) and ILL.

Rutgers, Michigan, and Ohio State for the crossover games.
Thankfully they only changed some dates and no opponents. I was worried they'd drop OSU again. Sounds like they'll be tweaking the 2023 schedule, also, so hopefully we'll get 'em at home next season instead of having to wait until 2025 (8 years between home games against the conference's marquee team is utterly ridiculous).

Would rather play Minny early and RU late but overall not bad.
We played 10 bowl teams this year and looks similar next year.
Need to protect Kinnick,especially vs Mich and Wis.

They said on B1G Today that multiple games will likely be changed to Friday, and maybe some to Thursday (assuming only some opening week non-conf games as usual).

They didnt do Wisconsin season tick holders any favors:oops:
Yeah, their home schedule was bad to begin with, now the B1G changed Neb to away and Purd to home, which is probably worse as far as fan interest goes (20 frickin' straight wins against Purdue, WTF). At least they're still coming to Kinnick.

You cannot say that right now.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure I can, but I guess we'll see. Iowa's world-beater-looking schedule took quite a nosedive between Labor Day weekend and New Year's Day (although they still ended up with a top 20 schedule thanks to the BTCG and a solid bowl opponent). I have a hard time believing that PSU, Mich and Mich St will all end up the duds that Ind, ISU and PSU were in 2021.

Same people who made Iowa’s home basketball schedule this year.

Great example of predictions falling far short of results. You can see how the schedule's relative difficulty looks only after the teams have established their quality over the course of the season. indy completely imploded, that wins relative value fell very dramatically. the 'clones and psu fell off fairly sharply as well. If you're looking at a "best" win for the season it was probably minny?
It was a 10 win season; nothing to sneeze at. But when you pick it apart it is a relatively lackluster looking 10 wins. They beat mediocre to bad teams and were hammered by the better teams they played(other than staying competitive in the bowl game).
If psu is improved and um and msu even just hold steady then the schedule should look stronger at the top end come end of season 2022.

The best part of this change is that we don't have to tailgate at home 4 straight weeks in September. Over the years, it's become quite apparent how hard the oppressive September heat and humidity can be on the body, week after week after week after week.
