Northwestern start time

Submitted by Abomb4480 on October 29th, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Start time for Northwestern game has been announced and will kickoff at noon on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.  Glad because the Nebraska/Penn State game will kick at 3:30 and I'll be rooting hard for Penn State!

I'm driving from Toronto to my hometown just south of Windsor Friday morning after work is done at 7am. Trying to catch a nap before my 90 min trek to Yost for michigan vs Staee. Then drive back home (I I'm lucky not to get dragged out to my buddies) and now have to be up first thing in the morning to go back over to te football game. Was really hoping for a 3:30 kick. Selfishly would've made that weekend a lot easier

Dammit, about what exactly?

 

Anyway, this is good to have a couple of early ones in a row, get the games over with early enough to watch the later games and for me to actually get something done on a Saturday.

Last year, we had eight noon games, I think (although Iowas was 11 AM local time, noon EDT), and it is shaping up that all the noon games this year will fall just in November (again, one 11 CDT start). Of course, Big Ten policy on night games would help to force that move anyway, television or not. In any case, it is good to know well in advance due to the "what to do with the kids factor".

Come to think of it, it's been some time since we have even had a 3:30 PM kickoff at home in November. It seems like 3:30 PM in November is always away for us (Illinois last year, although it was 2:30 CT) and Michigan State 2007 stand out for me.

you would have gotten a better game day experience with a full day of tailgating and seeing a student section.  You will be lucky to see the student section half full by the 2nd quarter.  I also fear that the stadium will be extremely quiet and docile given the Denard injury and the fact that a shot at the B16 title seems unlikely.  Damn I hate AMQBHG and AMRATGRRF.
