The Big Ten and SEC will play conference matchups, switching timeslots on varying weeks- throughout the nine-week lineup.
 
All games will be available through WatchESPN, accessible online at WatchESPN.com on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, through ESPN on Xbox LIVE to Gold members, and on Apple TV to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.
