Start time for Michigan State vs. Michigan still to be determined

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

With ESPN/ABC still figuring out its broadcast schedule, the start time for the Oct. 20 match-up between Michigan and Michigan State is still undetermined.

With ESPN/ABC exercising its right to choose which games begin at noon ET and which games begin at 3:30 p.m. ET, the start time for the Oct. 20 match-up between the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans is still up in the air at the moment.

As Adam Rittenberg of ESPN writes, the final Big Ten schedule for Oct. 20 is still in flux as ESPN/ABC determines which games will be broadcast at what times. Beyond the Michigan-Michigan State game, the other two games with start times to be determined are Nebraska-Northwestern and Ohio State-Purdue.

The other three remaining Big Ten games for that week -- Minnesota-Wisconsin, Indiana-Navy and Iowa-Penn State -- are all scheduled already. Two of the three unscheduled games will be broadcast by ESPN/ESPN2/ABC during the afternoon, while the third game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.

On Saturday, if Michigan is able to beat Illinois and Michigan State is able to knock off Iowa, there's a good possibility that both teams will be ranked by the time Oct. 20 comes around. The Wolverines are ranked No. 25 after beating Purdue 44-13 last week, while the Spartans are 4-2 after beating Indiana.
