Welcome to Big Ten play. Today marks the start of Ohio State's conference action; the road back to Indianapolis starts this afternoon.
When and where is today's game?
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ET in Bloomington, IN. After three home games, the Buckeyes are back on the road.
How can I watch it on TV?
Once again, today's game is on ABC with an ESPN2 reverse mirror. If you don't remember what that is, it simply means that, if the game isn't on ABC on your TV, then it's on ESPN2. Away from the TV today? Then WatchESPN's got your back. You can also tune in to 97.1 FM The Fan or your local Ohio State radio network affiliate.
This map here will show you which channel has the game where you live. You're welcome.
How are the Hoosiers this year?
They're 4-0 so far, just like us. This is also their B1G opener. For the inside scoop on Indiana, check out The Crimson Quarry.
GameDay's not gonna be in Bloomington. Where are they this week?
Today's spotlight game is a big one: No. 6 Notre Dame at No. 12 Clemson. Some people think that, if they playoffs were held right now, Notre Dame would deserve a spot. The playoffs aren't right now, obviously, but it means that the Irish are definitely worth paying attention to as the season unfolds. A win over No. 12 certainly wouldn't hurt their case. That game's on at 8 p.m. ET on ABC and WatchESPN.
I need more B1G action. What've you got for me?
The Big Ten is going into week 5 with five teams in the top 25: No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 Michigan State, No. 16 Northwestern, No. 19 Wisconsin, and No. 22 Michigan. With half of the current top 4 spots belonging to legends and leaders, it's safe to assume that conference play is going to be important (and in the national media's eye).
All of today's games are afternoon kickoffs; no playing under the lights this week.
At noon, we've got Army at Penn State, Purdue at No. 2 Michigan State, Minnesota at No. 16 Northwestern, Iowa at No. 19 Wisconsin, and No. 22 Michigan at Maryland.
The Buckeyes and the Hoosiers kick off at 3:30 p.m., and Nebraska at Illinois follows at 4:02 p.m. (What an odd start time. Come on, Illinois, why do you have to be so weird? I know this is your fault.)
