Ohio State-Northwestern is being moved off FS1 Friday night due to today’s ALCS Game 4 postponement. New television info for the game has just been announced.
The Buckeyes and Wildcats will instead be shown on Big Ten Network. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET from Ryan Field in Evanston.
Game 5 of the Yankees-Astros playoff series, originally scheduled for tomorrow, has been pushed back to Friday due to the rainout. The rescheduled game will take precedence over OSU-Northwestern and be shown on FS1.
WWE SmackDown is already slotted for primetime on FOX Friday night.

In general, Big Ten fans are not happy about having to play occasional Friday night games. When those games get moved because of a postseason MLB game, well, they’re even more peeved.
Fortunately, Ohio State-Northwestern being shown on BTN is better than the alternative of getting pushed to Fox Business.
At 6-0, Ohio State leads the Big Ten East and is ranked top five in the country. Northwestern (1-4) is looking for its first win in league play.
The Wildcats are 0-3 against Big Ten foes one year after winning their division and reaching the conference title game.
