Wisconsin football schedule: Badgers get zero primetime games on initial 2014-15 ESPN/ABC TV slate

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Clarification: Aside from the Aug. 30 opener vs. LSU, Wisconsin has zero additional primetime games scheduled on ESPN/ABC.

The announcement of ESPN/ABC's upcoming college football primetime TV slate might be one of the high points of the offseason -- at least for action-starved fans. This time around, however, Wisconsin is left in the dark.

The first portion of the Big Ten's primetime schedule was announced Tuesday, showcasing six games that will be played under the lights and televised on either ESPN or ABC.

Sept. 6

Virginia Tech at Ohio State, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN

Sept. 20

Miami at Nebraska, 8 p.m. ET, ABC or ESPN or ESPN2

Oct. 4

Nebraska at Michigan State, 8 p.m. ET, ABC or ESPN or ESPN2

Oct. 11

Penn State at Michigan, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN or ESPN2

Oct. 25

Ohio State at Penn State, 8 p.m. ET, ABC or ESPN or ESPN2

Nov. 1

Illinois at Ohio State, 8 p.m. ET, ABC or ESPN or ESPN2

Of note: Ohio State gets three games -- including a long-waited November primetime contest. Penn State and Nebraska also get multiple appearances, and that Sept. 20 Miami-Nebraska game should be fun.

The Badgers played three primetime games last season, including two on the ESPN/ABC family -- Arizona State and Ohio State. The third was the Illinois game, which aired on BTN.

This season's opener on Aug. 30 vs. LSU will be televised by an ESPN network in primetime, though an exact kickoff time has not been set.
