Wildcat fans can start preparing for another early September kickoff.
According to a tweet from the Wisconsin football program, the Sept. 28 matchup between Northwestern and Wisco will get underway at 11 a.m. This will be Northwestern’s second straight 11 a.m kickoff as the team gets Michigan State at home this weekend in the early time slot.
It’s also important to note that this will be NU’s second straight game broadcast on ABC, thus continuing the Wildcats’ recent trend of landing on national TV time slots.
This is actually really interesting. Would be Northwestern’s 11th game on network TV (FOX, NBC, ABC) since 2014, compared to just one (1) from 2010 to 2013. https://t.co/XisjZlYWl4— Ella Brockway (@ellabrockway) September 9, 2019
Both teams have huge conference openers this weekend (Wisco hosts Michigan), and if the Badgers take care of business at home, NU will probably be traveling to Madison to take on a Top 10 ranked team in what will certainly be a pivotal showdown in determining the landscape of the Big Ten West.
Anyone planning on making the trip up to Madison?
