Kickoff times, broadcast information announced for B1G Week 8 games
Rivalry Week is finally upon us. Assuming all seven games are on for next weekend, we’ll close out the regular season with some really fun and interesting B1G matchups.
As the B1G football regular season begins to wind down, the league has officially released the kickoff times for Week 8.
A slate of four noon games will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12, highlighted by in-state rivalry game between Illinois and Northwestern. Another in-state showdown takes place in the 3:30PM slot when Indiana and Purdue square off.
Of course, the day is highlighted by the annual Michigan-Ohio State game, though the Buckeyes will be a heavy favorite on Saturday. That is, of course, if the Wolverines are able to take the field. Fingers crossed, right?
