B1G won't have any prime time games for two straight weeks
There will be no B1G games scheduled for prime time each of the next two Saturdays.
Yes, every beat reporter covering a team in the conference is silently celebrating. Or maybe it’s not so silent.
Each of the last two weeks, the B1G has announced that TV networks have chosen to use their allotted six-day selections to set the times for games within the conference. That means channel and kickoff time announcements aren’t released until the week of the game.
However, there are no night games scheduled for Nov. 10 or Nov. 17.
Kickoff times for Week 11 games in the B1G were released on Sunday. Times and broadcast information for Nov. 17 games will be announced next Sunday.
There are only two set kickoff times for games on the final weekend of the season. Nebraska and Iowa will go head-to-head at noon ET on Friday, Nov. 23. And, as usual, Michigan-Ohio State is set for a noon kickoff on Saturday, Nov. 24.
This Saturday, four B1G games will start at noon ET while the other three will begin at 3:30 p.m. ET.
