A byeless, eight-game regular season will be followed by “Champions Week” — or the league championship game and a slew of interdivisional Big Ten matchups. 

But first football players, coaches and other staff will be tested daily starting no later Sept. 30.

The teams have five weeks to prepare. 

The full schedule is expected to be released this week.
