How to watch Ohio State-Illinois: Game time, TV schedule, and Week 10 TV Guide

The Buckeyes and the Illini battle at 8 p.m. ET on ABC (channels 6 and 1006 on Time Warner Columbus/Delaware).

Bradley Leeb-USA TODAY Sports

After a tough road battle last week, the newly ranked No. 16 Ohio State Buckeye return home for a game against the Fighting Illini of Illinois. There's a lot on the line, though perhaps nothing as important as the mighty Illibuck trophy. Why we don't play every game for a giant turtle trophy is beyond me. Any hopes the Buckeyes have of making it up into that top four by the end of the season depend on some solid wins, so you'll want to make sure you're watching every game to see what the team has in store.

When and where is today's game?

We're back home in Columbus this week, continuing our string of night games. Kickoff will be at 8 p.m. ET. So far, we're 1-1 under the lights this season. Here's hoping for another W.

What are my viewing options this week?

Just like last week, the Buckeyes will be on ABC this week in the primetime slot, though only in select markets. Check out the map below to see if you'l be able to get it on your TV. We've also got some online options. You can watch either on Watch ABC or ESPN 3. If none of these options work for you, it will also be available on pay-per-view via ESPN Gameplan. Our TV crew this week will be Sean McDonough, Chris Spielman, and Todd McShay. Fans of old-timey radio can also listen to the game on 97.1 FM The Fan or their local Ohio State radio network affiliate.

What about GameDay? Are they still just hanging out with the SEC?

Not anymore! The ESPN crew has packed up and headed north to Morgantown, WV, where the West Virginia Mountaineers will host the TCU Horned Frogs. TCU is currently higher ranked than the Buckeyes at No. 7, so a win by WVU could help us out in the polls. That game will be on at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC, ESPN 2, and Watch ESPN.

Where can I find the rest of the Big Ten this week?

At noon, you can choose between Penn State at Indiana, Iowa at Minnesota, and Wisconsin at Purdue. At 3:30 p.m., Michigan plays at Northwestern. Our game rounds out the night. Michigan State, our opponent next week, has a bye.
