Since I've seen a lot of arguments regarding what we do on first downs, and a few people think that Borges still called a bad game re: first downs, I've tried to quantify the play-calls on our first downs through the first half. (Sorry about the table. It's not working for some weird reason?)
Boise State at Michigan State, 8 p.m., ESPN
Indiana State at Indiana, 8 p.m., Big Ten Network
Vanderbilt at Northwestern, 8 p.m., BTN
Notre Dame at Michigan State, 8 p.m., ABC
Utah State at Wisconsin, 8 p.m., BTN
Ball State at Indiana, 8 p.m., BTN
Syracuse at Minnesota, 8 p.m., BTN
Louisiana Tech at Illinois, 8 p.m., BTN
Wisconsin at Nebraska, 8 p.m., ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2
Nebraska at Ohio State, 8 p.m., ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2
Ohio State at Indiana, 8 p.m., BTN
Penn State at Iowa, 8 p.m., BTN
Ohio State at Penn State, 6 p.m., ESPN or ESPN2
Michigan at Nebraska, 8 p.m., ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2
Some of my notes:
-Our game at Notre Dame will be a night game. I'm not sure why that's not included on this schedule.
-The above would put Ohio, Nebraska, IU and us at 3 prime-time games each. As for why IU is getting 3 prime-time games, I don't think anyone really knows.
-Purdue is the only team with no prime-time games.
