Northwestern's October 29 game at Ohio State will be played at 4:30 CT (5:30 ET) on an ESPN network. ESPN announced the game time, along with the rest of its primetime schedule, in a press release Monday.

The Ohio State game will be the first meeting between the Buckeyes and Wildcats since their Week 6 game in 2013. With both teams undefeated and College Gameday in Evanston, Ohio State rallied past Northwestern 40-30.

The last time the teams met in Columbus was in 2007, when Ohio State steamrolled Northwestern, 58-7.

The game will be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2. It's the second primetime game for the Wildcats, who will play Duke under the lights on the Big Ten Network in September.
