MIAMI, Sporting Alert – Another loaded college football schedule is set for this weekend and ESPN3 and WatchESPN will provide live streaming coverage of selected games.
Highlighting the list of matches on the fixture on Saturday is the Big Ten matchup between No. 6 Ohio State and No. 10 Nebraska at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
Neither team can afford to lose another game this season if they want to win their respective Big Ten divisions and stay on track to earn a college football playoff slot.
The Buckeyes (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) who held on for a 24-20 victory against Northwestern last weekend, are sitting second behind the undefeated Michigan in the EAST division, while the Cornhuskers (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) who lead the WEST division suffered their first loss of the season with a 23-17 defeat to Wisconsin.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Ohio State has an 89 percent chance to win against Nebraska and heads into the challenge as a 17.5 point favourite.
Kick-off time for this ESPN3 fixture is set for 8:00pm ET.
No. 8 Wisconsin (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) travels to Ryan Field in Evanston, IL, to take on Northwestern (4-4, 3-2 Big Ten) in another conference game West division battle.
The Badgers have a 65 percent chance to win this game, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index, but the visitors will also remember that they have not won against the Wildcats in the last two meetings.
Last year Northwestern beat Wisconsin 13-7 on the road, while in 2014 the Wildcats won 20-14 at home.
According to Northwestern, the Cats trail the Badgers 35-57-5 all-time in this series, but they have won six of the last 10 meetings, including five-straight at Ryan Field since 2000.
This game is streaming live on ESPN3, starting at 12:00pm.
Also streaming live on ESPN3 and WatchESPN are the clashes between No. 2 Clemson against Syracuse and No. 5 Washington at California.
