Ohio State at Penn State was only ESPN or ESPN2, not ABC/ ESPN. All the other ABC ones were ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.
Thanks, BTN tweeted the OSU-PSU game wrong I believe.
The others we list as ABC/ESPN TBA for space reasons.
Hey Kevin k. Do u know if Michigan plays all night games this year
No, I only know what’s been released so far.
Wow, that’s quite a lot of non-conference games.
some good quality games in there. @gcd I’m not 100% sure but Ive heard 1 home night game possible for Michigan
Utah ST v. Wisconsin??? What a waste of a game. Wisconsin will slaughter those clowns.
