Thanks to some good fortune I'll be able to successfully embark on my Hajj to AA for the OSU game, but only if it's a 12:00 game...does anyone have any info or know when it is? I thought it was typically a noon game, but perhaps I'm wrong, and I couldn't find anything definitive after some light google-fu.
OSU game start time?
The networks will not make their selections until day 12 at the earliest (i.e., November 18). Noon seems likely, but is not guaranteed.
Ah crap, was worried...I figured I'd want to buy tix now for me + wife, but I don't think I should then if they wait that long to announce start time.
I wouldn't pass on the opportunity; you can always get rid of them later if it doesn't work out, right?
PRO: Since they moved the OSU-Michigan game to Thanksgiving weekend (starting in 2010), the game has always been at noon on ABC, as part of a tripleheader.
CON: Unfortunately, I don't see 3 games on Thanksgiving Saturday this year that ABC has the rights to and would want to broadcast nationally. CBS gets to pick Alabama-Auburn and either Florida State-Florida or Clemson-South Carolina, with the other game going to ESPN (not ABC), and FOX owns Notre Dame-Stanford. ABC is left with dregs, but they will still probably go with a noon-3:30 doubleheader, with the OSU game at noon and maybe Baylor-TCU and Wisconsin-Penn State (or Minnesota-Michigan State?) reverse mirrored at 3:30.
But last night during the Louisville-UConn gamme they showed a graphic that said it was at 12 ET. I was very excited and looked it up on mgoblue but it still says TBA.
You can bet money on a noon start. Don't worry about it.
When was the last time the game was not played at noon? Trying to remember but can't come up with anything recent.
2006 started at 3:30 (part of a doubleheader on ABC with California-USC at 8:00). I think the last 3:30 start at Michigan was in 1985.
is a noon game. IF michigan were to win out, maybe ABC would move it to 3:30, but that is pretty unlikely.
It will be a nooner. Any disgruntled fans out there that want to sell me their tickets?
The game is November 30...it can be cold that time of year. I'm hoping for noon.
...it WILL be cold that time of year.
I'd like a night game. Screw the cold. It'd be awesome, but it will never happen.
Of Stubhub is any sort of authority or has inside info, they have it listed as 1pm.
No one will know until the week of the game. Just wait.
I can only assume it'll be at noon. I think '06 was the only time in recent memory that the game started any later than that.
