Big Ten Network Announces Primetime Games

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue and Wisconsin have zero (0) primetime guys while Rutgers has...two?!

The Big Ten Network released their primetime schedule for B1G football and it is...interesting. The list:

Saturday, September 13th:

7:00PM CT: Penn State @ Rutgers.

Saturday, September 27th:

5:00PM CT: Cincinnati @ Ohio State.

8:00PM CT: Illinois @ Nebraska

Saturday, October 4th:

5:00PM CT: Michigan @ Rutgers

Saturday, October 18th:

6:30PM CT: Nebraska @ Northwestern

Saturday, November 15th:

7:00PM CT: Michigan State @ Maryland

So, Rutgers plays in two night games and there's a second night game scheduled in November. Also, Illinois will play in two primetime games (they already have one scheduled on ABC/ESPN). Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue and Wisconsin have a total of ZERO night games which seems odd considering Wisconsin has seemingly played in 3-4 high profile match-ups in the past two or three seasons.*

On the opposite side of the spectrum is Ohio State and Nebraska who both play in FOUR night games.

Five national championships, amirite?

* - To clarify I was talking about conference games.
