The Big Ten and its TV partners have announced the kickoff times and television plans for the conference's Sept. 29 games. One of the league's two big matchups for that week, Ohio State at Michigan, will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET from East Lansing, Mich., and will be televised on ABC.
Whether or not the game airs regionally or national is largely dependent on the results of both teams' games this weekend. Neither school should have a problem winning, as the Spartans are 32 and a half-point favorites over Eastern Michigan, while the Buckeyes are favored by 37 and a half points over UAB
So, if all goes as planned, the game could receive huge television exposure, although it will air on ABC regionally anyway, while a national broadcast on ESPN2 is the worst-case scenario.
Wisconsin at Nebraska is the Big Ten's other marquee game on Sept. 29. Meanwhile, the Michigan Wolverines have a bye that weekend.
