Wisconsin Will be a Primetime Kickoff

By Jason Priestas on May 12, 2011 at 3:38p

The Big Ten primetime football selection process has been completed and you can add the Wisconsin game (10/29) to the two previously disclosed night kickoffs for the Buckeyes this fall. It's been known for some time that the October 8th clash with Nebraska would be played at night, and yesteday the ACC announced that the OSU/Miami game would be a 7:30 or 8:00pm kickoff.

Like the game in Lincoln, the Badger game will be carried by ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 (the Miami game will be broadcast by ABC or ESPN).

On a related note, we're pleased to announce Eat Too Brutus is officially back for a 2nd year this fall and will take place during the afternoon of the Wisconsin game. The event was a complete blast ahead of the Miami game last season, but we're kicking things up a notch. Eat Too Brutus will be presented by City Barbeque and will be held to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. We'll have much more on this soon. Plan accordingly.

Will do everything to be there and hopefully not in 'beastly hanjover mode'. Night game helps things.

Embarrassing wisky in front of a national audience would be nice.

Plan accordingly. Should be one of those weekends you take to your graves knowing you were a part of.

Hope I get this one with my alumni lottery.  Of course, I have a better chance of getting hit by lightning, but still...

Looking forward to having THREE night games this season, including one at home. Now hopefully there is something to play for (NCAA looming with a potential bowl ban and all).

This is completely unrelated, but did anyone else notice the Michigan helmet on Kevin's desk today on The Office?  Not sure if it's always been there, but not sure I can be a fan of his anymore, lol

I would love to go, but duty calls. On a related note (for once) any of you fellas out in San Diego?

Sounds like a great time.  Thanks for donating to the Stefanie Spielman fund!  You need to do an article about the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer.  All of the funds from it go to the Spielman fund as well.  The cruise is a great way to wrap up the football season.
