The Big Ten Network will televise eight Big Ten football games on Saturday. Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin play at noon ET, Penn State at 3:30 PM ET and Indiana and Minnesota kick off in prime time. Because cable channels vary by market, fans looking to identify the game they want to watch should go to www.BigTenNetwork.com/GameFinder and enter their zip code to get their channel number.

The network makes all of its games available to its cable, satellite and telco affiliates so they may air as many games as they wish. In addition to a game on their main Big Ten Network channel, many affiliates carry the other Big Ten Network games on Extra Football Game Channels.  It is the local affiliate's decision whether to offer these extra channels.
