Well, the next two games (at least) will be noon kickoffs. This is the way too far from prime time slot accorded to mediocre matchups by the schedulers at ESPN/ABC. The game desirability pecking order is further delineated by whichever particular Disney owned channel is chosen for broadcast, starting with ABC, then ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and, finally, ESPN+ regional coverage. For our Illinois game, we’re slated for ESPN2. So, from the prime-time heights of ABC at 8 PM, we sink to ESPN2 at noon. This means that unless you’re fortunate enough to be heading to State College for Homecoming or unless you’re planning to listen to Steve Jones and Jack Ham on the radio, you might have to put up with Pam Ward yet again.
