BIG 10 FOOTBALL COMING TO FRIDAY NIGHT: Friday night football is coming to the Big 10. The B1G’s new television rights deal calls for six Friday night football games in 2017, which OSU athletic director Gene Smith is “supportive of.” Smith said OSU will host one Friday night game every three years.

Tim May with more on what to expect from the Buckeyes on future Friday nights.
