The Big Ten Network has picked up the September 17, 2011 college football matchup between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Illinois Fighting Illini.
The game will be held at 7:00 PM Eastern time, and 4:00 PM Arizona time. Night games in the Big Ten are unusual, but this will benefit Arizona-based fans who want to see their team play on television.
Here's more from the press release:
