Tomorrow's Boston College vs. Northwestern game kicks off at 3:30 Eastern / 2:30 Central on the Big Ten Network. The problem is that BTN is also airing the Massachusetts-Michigan game in the same time slot. In order to find out whether your cable provider will air the BC-NU game, check out the BTN Football Games Finder.

Enter your ZIP Code and your cable provider to determine whether you'll be able to watch the game at home.

If you see more than one game listed for the time slot, you should be OK. The BTN makes extra football game channels available during the 13 football Saturdays of the season when they have the rights to more than one Big Ten game in the same time slot.
