The first two University of Wisconsin football games this season -- against Akron Aug. 30 and Marshall Sept. 6 at Camp Randall Stadium -- will begin at 11 a.m. and be televised by the Big Ten Network, the conference announced today.
That means times for six of the Badgers' 11 regular-season games in 2008 are set. UW's non-conference game at Fresno State Sept. 13 will begin at 9:30 p.m.; Big Ten home games against Ohio State on Oct. 4 and Penn State Oct. 11 will start at 7 p.m.; and the Badgers' Homecoming game against Illinois Oct. 25 will kickoff at 11 a.m.
The Big Ten today released the game times and TV plans for every home non-conference game during the first four weekends of the season. The non-conference schedule will feature 30 home games televised by ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or the Big Ten Network, beginning with eight games on Aug. 30.
So it looks like those of us with cable are once again on the short end of the stick. I guess I have three options:
1. Get Satellite TV (Not going to happen)
2. Go to a bar that has the game (10:30 am on a Saturday, I will probably be asleep by dinner time)
3. Go to the game ( A great website to buy Badger Football Tickets is www.badgertickets.com)
