The 1969 Big Ten Conference football season took place during the 1969 college football season. The season featured the nation's top-ranked squad, Ohio State, for most of the year and produced one of the memorable upsets in college football history when its archrival Michigan upset Ohio State in the regular season's final game. This season also marked the debut of Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler, who would become a fixture in the conference for the next two decades.
