The first two Big Ten Saturday Night on NBC football games of the 2024 season have been set, the network announced on Monday.

Big Ten Saturday Night on NBC this season will debut on Saturday, Aug. 31 with the Michigan Wolverines hosting the Fresno State Bulldogs at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich. The game will kickoff at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT and will be televised by NBC and streamed via Peacock.

The following week on Saturday, Sept. 7, Coach Prime and the Colorado Buffaloes will travel to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb. The game will also kickoff at 7:30pm ET (6:30pm CT / 5:30pm MT) with live coverage via NBC and Peacock.

The Big Ten will have three premier windows for college football broadcasts on Saturdays, beginning at noon ET with the Big Noon Kickoff on FOX. Games will then follow on CBS at 3:30pm ET and on NBC in primetime.

Both football games, Fresno State at Michigan and Colorado at Nebraska, were showcased by NBC as part of its Upfront presentation.
