Considering the start of college football is about five months away, the slow drip of schedule leaks will begin to trickle out. 

The Big Ten released its primetime matches via the Big Ten Network and the games feature some big-time matchups. New Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh will get his shot in primetime Oct. 3 against Maryland. Last season's fifth-ranked Michigan State gets its turn in primetime Oct. 10 at Rutgers. 

Keep an eye on the Nov. 14 matchup between Minnesota and Iowa as that could determine the winner of the Big Ten West. The network will televise at least 40 games, but check out the full lineup of primetime games below:

9/12/15 South Alabama at Nebraska
9/19/15 Rutgers at Penn State
9/26/15 Hawaii at Wisconsin
10/3/15 Michigan at Maryland
10/10/15 Michigan State at Rutgers
11/14/15 Minnesota at Iowa
