The news of “The Game” between Michigan and Ohio State moving to FOX was a little surprising after watching it on ABC or ESPN for the past few decades.
Yesterday, a more traditional addition to the game was made.
The contest between the Buckeyes and Wolverines will begin at noon (ET) from Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.
This all comes as a part of the new deal that FOX has with the Big Ten. Currently, the Michigan-OSU game is the only one the Wolverines have scheduled on FOX in the 2017 season.
Other start times that were announced include Michigan’s home opener at the Big House on Sept. 9, starting at noon on ABC/ESPN or ESPN 2. On Sept. 23, the Wolverines will head on the road to take on Purdue with a kickoff time set for either 3:30 or 4 p.m. (ET) with the network still undecided.
Then on Oct. 14 Michigan will have a road trip to Indiana with a start time set for noon (network TBD) and then on Oct. 28 will take on Rutgers for the annual homecoming game with kickoff set for noon (network TBD).
The final start time that was already announced earlier is the season-opener against Florida in Arlington, Texas with a 3:30 (ET) start time on ABC.
