COLUMBUS, Ohio – The start time for the Oct. 29 Ohio State/Northwestern game at Ohio Stadium has been adjusted at the request of ESPN from 5:30 p.m. EDT to 3:30 p.m. EDT, the Big Ten Conference office announced today.
Both participating institutions and the Conference agreed to move the start time of the game that will be carried by ABC, ESPN or ESPN2, with the platform designation to be announced at a later date.
This will be the first Ohio State/Northwestern game in Ohio Stadium in nine years, or since Sept. 22, 2007. The teams have played just twice since that game with both contests in Evanston: a 45-10 Ohio State win in 2008 and a 40-30 Ohio State win in 2013.
