The Big Ten schedule leaves little wiggle room for cancelations or postponements due to the coronavirus, as the NCAA college football playoff seedings will be decided just a day following the conference's championship on Dec. 19.
The Terps' final contest will come on Dec. 19 against a cross-divisional opponent from the West, as the top-two teams in the Big Ten will square off for a chance at the championship. There will be no fans in attendance at any of the games for at least the start of the season.
