Kickoff time adjusted for Week 4 showdown between Northwestern and Purdue
The cancellation of Saturday’s showdown between Ohio State and Maryland has resulted in a new kickoff time for the game between Purdue and Northwestern.
That contest between the Buckeyes and Terrapins was the only contest originally slated for the late afternoon time slot on BTN for Week 4. There were originally two games scheduled for primetime across the conference with Purdue and Northwestern slated for 7:30 pm EST on BTN and Wisconsin vs. Michigan scheduled for 7:30 on ABC.
Following the Ohio State-Maryland cancellation, the game between the Boilermakers and Wildcats has been bumped up into the late afternoon time slot on BTN. Northwestern announced the shift Wednesday evening:

This shift will allow the conference to still maintain a game during each Saturday time slot while also not pitting two games on air at the same time during primetime.
