According to a school press release, Michigan State’s Big Ten game against visiting Ohio State on Nov. 8 will kick off at 8 p.m. and be televised on ABC/ESPN.
The contest marks the fifth game the Spartans will have at night this fall. The others include:
- Friday, Aug. 29 vs. Jacksonville State (7:30 p.m, BTN/BTN2Go)
- Saturday, Sept. 6 at Oregon (6:30 p.m., FOX)
- Saturday, Oct. 4 vs. Nebraska (8 p.m., ABC/ESPN/ESPN2)
- Saturday, Nov. 8 vs. Ohio State (8 p.m., ABC/ESPN)
- Saturday, Nov. 15 at Maryland (8 p.m., BTN/BTN2Go)
Michigan State will play back-to-back night games twice during the season.
It’s still possible for Michigan State to end up with more night games, and if the Spartans win its division this fall, they’ll play in the Big Ten Championship Game, another night game held Saturday, Dec. 6 (8 p.m., FOX).
The night game with Michigan State gives Ohio State a record five regular season games at night this fall.
Michigan State defeated Ohio State 34-24 in the championship game en route to playing in the 2014 Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio, a 24-20 win over Stanford.
