Ok, so I can’t find a game time or TV station. Can someone help a brother out?

A “Minnesota vs. Michigan” google search result says the game starts at 5am (my pacific Time, 7am local). This has to be a mistake.

Neither the game time nor the TV station have been announced.

All up in the air still on this kinda thing.

I suspect the TV networks have to go through their picking order and such still.

Even when they do decide if the game is actually still on don't be suprised if it gets bumped somewhere else if another game isn't played.

Can we assume Nebraska will find a way to say the game time is a disadvantage for them?

Don't forget - when the new schedule was announced, Barry Alvarez (who was on the scheduling committee) said that some games could be moved to Friday or other days/nights of the week.

So the schedule, as I understand it, is more of a template and some final adjustments are still pending.

Don't forget, in the original schedule, the Gophers were going to play two Friday games.

The Big 10 needs to address the Friday night games for next year. The high majority of coaches, fans etc. don't like them.
They don't care who likes it, they care who watches it. The players and coaches don't have a choice and the more serious fans will still watch their team's games even if they don't like the time. More casual fans will watch more games if there are more options and fans of other teams are more likely to watch a particular game if there are fewer games at the same time.

Perhaps the B1G will be given the time slots normally reserved for the MAC conference. PJ is used to it...

The schools seem to have a choice. Several announced they absolutely would not do Friday night games at home ... and they weren't scheduled.

Schools that will pull in viewers even on Saturday at the same time as other games. Everyone else doesn't get that option. If Illinois or Rutgers say they won't do Friday games they'll still get them.

Minnesota probably can't turn them down but with a few division championships and a few years consistently in the top 25, that would probably work here.

Well, you certainly wont have to worry about low attendance on a Friday night due to high school football conflicts. I love a Friday night game!
