Over the offseason, it was announced that Purdue’s homecoming game against Michigan would either kickoff at 3:30 or 4pm Eastern Time, with TV coverage TBD. With less than 2 weeks to go until the game, it was announced that the game would kickoff at 4pm, and FOX will be covering the game:
This means that three of Purdue’s first four games will have been shown on the FOX Networks, and Purdue’s second game on the main network channel. This year, the Big Ten expanded their TV rights to the FOX Networks, including FOX and FS1. FOX already owned 51% of BTN prior to this deal.
