7 Comments to ESPN Adds More Big Ten Games To 2013 Football TV Schedule

    There are some Big Badger games that have not been picked up yet. BYU @ Wisconsin should be huge, especially non conference late in the season! Lets go ESPN pick it up :)

      Most games will be announced 6-12 days prior to kickoff.

      I expect that the BYU vs Wisconsin game will be picked up by one of the ESPN networks it has a likelihood to be a late season top 25 matchup between 2 coaches very familiar with each other.

    Every Big Ten home game will be televised on either ESPN/ESPN2/ABC or on BTN. I imagine each and every road game will be televised also;

    Why does the Big Ten Network air alot of their games at the same time instead of spreading them out. In Week 2 and Week 3 they have several games at 6 PM. Especially in Week 3 where there is no afternoon game spread them out more.

    You have both the PS/Syracuse game and the Ohio State vs. Buffalo at Noon (EST) on 8/31 and then on the schedule below different times? Is the schedule correct?
