That’ll be four of the first six games in a primetime feel.

The No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers sure better be used to playing under the lights this season, as it was announced on Monday morning that their match-up against the Michigan Wolverines next Saturday, Oct. 13, will have a 6:30 p.m. CT start time.

As seen on UWBadgers.com, the game will be televised on ABC.

That will be three consecutive games (at Iowa, Nebraska, at Michigan) and four of its six contests so far this 2018 season that Wisconsin (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) has played at nighttime.

Heading into this week’s contest against the Huskers (6:30 p.m. CT, BTN), the Badgers are 2-0 in primetime affairs this year. Head coach Paul Chryst and his team defeated the Hawkeyes in a 28-17 win at Iowa City on Sept. 22 and comfortably won a 34-3 contest against Western Kentucky in the season-opener on Aug. 31.

Michigan (4-1, 2-0) faces Maryland this weekend in its homecoming game.
