Pair of Week 6 B1G games receive Peacock-only broadcasts
The full Week 6 B1G football schedule is out with kickoff times and broadcast channels included. A handful of fanbases will also need to make sure they have the Peacock streaming service lined up if they want to watch the game.
In Monday’s release of the schedule, the B1G revealed Rutgers vs. Wisconsin and Purdue vs. Iowa will be broadcast via NBC’s streaming platform. The Scarlet Knights and Badgers will have a high noon kickoff while the B1G West showdown will come at 3:30 p.m.
Fans have known for some time that certain events will land on Peacock since the introduction of the B1G’s new media deal, but it will still take some getting used to for a number of fans.
