Ohio State at Michigan State to Kickoff at 8 PM

The kickoff to the rematch of the 2013 Big Ten Championship game had been unknown, until today.

Ohio State's trip to East Lansing (November 8th) will be an 8 p.m. kickoff and will be televised on ABC. The Buckeyes now have a stretch of three consecutive night games — at Penn State, Illinois, at Michigan State — including two in November.

Ohio State also hosts Virginia Tech and Cincinnati at night. The five night games are a program record. It's all apart of Urban Meyer's efforts for more more night games.

Looks like I need to stock up on sleeping pills.  No way I'm calmed down enough to sleep for at least 3 hours after a game.

Awesome! Now I can feel less guilty about drinking at 10am and pretend I'm a "normal person."

Why would that make you feel guilty?

I'm told it's "bad" to drink that early.

(Note: I am also currently living in Utah which is not only a very dry state but there's something slightly more depressing about being on your couch in Salt Lake and drinking Gin at 10AM.)

But, let's be real; night games are the bee's knees and the drinking is in full swing.

I like the way you think.

Unless you're going to the game. Then it is your civic duty to start early, drink all day, and be loud and obnoxious at the game.

Shouldn't you feel more guilty since your still drinking at 10AM, for the 8PM game?

Woot!  This is gonna be a throw-down!

I hate waiting alllll day long for an emotional/tough night game.  But it'll be worth it.

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.

In this rivalry, Ohio State seems to play better in East Lansing, and MSU plays better in Columbus.  I also think Ohio State will be well represented in East Lansing.  On paper, MSU is not as good a team as they were last year, add the revenge factor for our guys, and I have to think this game will become a Buckeye blowout.

You can take the man out of Ohio, but you cannot take the Ohio out of the man. Go Bucks!!

Of course last year, there were a bunch of people that were saying we would win the Big Ten Championship because "It is just MSU".  In the last 5 games between the two schools there have been two games decided by 10 or more points.  From all appearances, Dantonio has built himself a solid program.  I would not count on "blowing" Sparty out.  I am picking Ohio State to win but not in a blow out.

Keep in mind that Sparty will be super hyped for this. Their fans are going to bring it! I sure hope our team gets their new identity worked out by the 3 game of the season.

If I'm not mistaken, the first time "Buckeye Swag" was played by the band was @ Sparty after a victory...I'd love to see a repeat performance under the lights.

That wasn't the first time it was played, the song debuted in 2011. Perhaps it was the first time it made it on TV?

Just an FYI he was referencing Lebron James with scarlet and red, so it was a funny.

Do they do urine bombs in E. Lansing? Just wondering if I need to take my brass knuckles. Hope I don't have to get all grown & sexy on 'em.

I was at E. Lansing for the game in 2012 and the natives were pretty cool. I was actually surprised at how nice the campus was.
