The Friday night game between Ohio State and Northwestern has been removed from Fox Sports 1 (FS1) due to the postponement of Houston Astros vs New York Yankees ALCS Game 5, which will be made up on Friday and will air on FS1. The game has been moved to the Big Ten Network – BTN.
Fox is scheduled to air Smackdown Live! by WWE at game time and was unlikely to move from the flagship network due to the new partnership between the entities. The logical place for the game was on one of Fox’s other owned networks which would be BTN which has access to 60 million households or Fox Business, which has 74 million households. While Fox Sports 2 was an option, the station only is available to 50 million households.
