College football schedule today: TV coverage, channels, scores for Week 4 Big Ten games

For a few teams, Week 4 is going to mark the beginning of the college football season. Michigan gets Jim Harbaugh back from a suspension, Ohio State plays another top-10 team in Notre Dame, and Iowa and Penn State play a conference game in Happy Valley.

Indeed, it's a big week for some of the top teams in the conference. But they aren't having all of the fun: Maryland and Michigan State have their own Big Ten showdown, while Minnesota and Northwestern also share a date in Evanston, Illinois. In the nonconference realm, Illinois will play FAU after a loss to the Nittany Lions last week, while Indiana hosts Akron.
