The Big Ten also released its full schedule on Wednesday. The defending Big Ten champs open the conference slate against Nebraska on Dec. 21 in Madison. Wisconsin will play top-10 competition in Iowa (Feb. 18, March 7) and Illinois (Feb. 6 and 27) later in the conference slate.

Earlier this month, UW announced no fans will be in attendance at games at the Kohl Center this year as a result of the pandemic.
