2016 College football schedule: Ohio State headlines ESPN's Big Ten night games

  Quarterback J.T Barrett will lead the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2016.

With star quarterback J.T Barrett back in the fold, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be appointment television for many during the 2016 season. There will be plenty of opportunities to check out Barrett and Co. in primetime.

ESPN announced its Big 10 night schedule on Monday, and the Buckeyes are featured prominently.

Date Game Time (ET)
Oct. 8 Michigan at Rutgers 7 p.m. or 8 p.m.
Oct. 15 Ohio State at Wisconsin 8 p.m.
Oct. 22 Ohio State at Penn State 8 p.m.
Oct. 29 Northwestern at Ohio State 5:30 p.m.
Oct. 29 Nebraska at Wisconsin 7 p.m.
Nov. 5 Nebraska at Ohio State 8 p.m.
Nov. 12 Michigan at Iowa 7 p.m. or 8 p.m.

Ohio State will play four times throughout ESPN’s six-week night schedule, including some juicy matchups against Northwestern and Wisconsin.

Still, the highlight of ESPN’s slate could be its Nov. 12 matchup featuring Michigan and Iowa. The Hawkeyes won the Big Ten West division last season, while the Wolverines finished third in the East behind Ohio State and Michigan State.

Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin will all play two night games on ESPN’s family of networks.
