Does anyone know? MGoBlue says tba, but I'm trying to plan something for that day...

It was posted somewhere on the board yesterday or the day before..... noon

EDIT:  You're already on the internet, why not use it instead of making us do it for you?

Where did you see that? When I look at ESPN it says TBA.  


Also sorry to hijack this thread, not enough Mgopoints to make my own, but Stefon Diggs put us back in his top 5.  It's paywalled (scout) so no link.  Sam Webb's the one who announced it.

ABC/ESPN gets an exclusive in that 330 slot, so there will only be one game there. 

Yeah, our game's going to be at noon. 

Let's hope UM-NU the next week is at 330. The other choice being PSU-OSU. Hopefully, ABC realizes that watching a game between those offenses might turn a whole generation of young fans away from football.

You must not of tried very hard then.  Michigan's team page on ESPN has the schedule right on the front and the game time that have already been announced.

I am inclined to believe that is has not been set since the athletic department is always on top of game times, especially for football.

As others have said Adam Rittenberg said today on the B1G Blog on ESPN that the game time will not be announced until the Monday before the game.  

So contrary to different reports the game is not at Noon yet.

CBS Sportsline has the game time listed as 10 am on both the Michigan and Illinois team pages. The time is said to be listed in the user's own zone (Eastern, in my case) and the Iowa game is listed correctly as 12 pm. There is no corresponding story explaining what would be a rather peculiar start, so I figure it's probably just a mistake.

No cause yet (other than habit) to start pregaming before dawn.
