It’s that time of the year when game times are being announced hot and heavy for the pending football season. Today, the final pieces fell into place for the Bowling Green Falcons’ trip to Chicago to take on the Northwestern Wildcats.

If you’re heading to Chi-town to catch a hopeful Mid-American Conference upset of yet another B1G squad, kick time is now set for 7:30. If you can’t make it, the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.

From the BG release:

The Big Ten has announced that Bowling Green's football game at Northwestern on Sept. 16 will be played at 7:30 pm and televised on the Big Ten Network.
