Two more 11:00 a.m. kickoffs - TTU and Pitt

The game times for the season opener against Tennessee Tech and the game against Pitt were announced yesterday and it's 11:00 for both. No surprise, the TTU game will be aired on BTN and the Pitt game will be picked up by either ESPN or ESPN2.

With the Iowa State game time announced last week, we're now up to 5 known kickoffs--4 of which are at 11:00.
  • vs. Tennessee Tech - September 3| 11:00 AM | BTN
  • at Iowa State - September 10 | 11:00 AM | FSN
  • vs. Pittsburgh - September 17 | 11:00 AM | ESPN/ESPN2
  • vs. Northwestern - October 15 | 6:00 PM | BTN
  • vs. Indiana - October 22 | 11:00 AM | TBA
  • at Nebraska - November 25 | 11:00 AM | ABC

I am still hopefull that there will be a bunch of 2:30 games to round out the schedule. The games against Penn State, Michigan, and Michigan State would be good candidates for a regional ABC game with a 2:30 start. And, BTN recently got the rights to air games at 2:30, which was was previously an exclusive time slot for ESPN/ABC for B1G games. This means the games against Louisiana-Monroe, Minnesota, and Purdue, which looked like obvious 11:00 BTN games before, could now be 2:30 BTN games. That sounds great to me.
