The Big Ten unveiled its new 2020 football schedule earlier today, and the conference did not do Nebraska any favors.

The Huskers have to open up at Ohio State before hosting Big Ten West favorite Wisconsin in the home opener in Week 2. There's also a crossover game against Penn State later in the season.

Nebraska's opponents were known coming into today, but there are some who have speculated that their brutal draw to open the season was the Big Ten's way of getting retribution for how publicly Nebraska fought to have the football season reinstated.

Whatever the reason for the scheduling, Huskers AD Bill Moos avoided complaining in his media session on Saturday.

In fact, he credited his school with being " a large reason we're even playing this fall."

This is a big season for the Huskers, as it enters Year 3 of the Scott Frost era. Getting to five wins and a bowl game should be the goal.

It won't be easy though.
