The Big Ten has announced kickoff times and TV plans for three more games this season, to go along with the nine I posted earlier Wednesday.

Illinois' home opener against Southern Illinois on Sept. 11 will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET and be televised by the Big Ten Network. And Indiana will host Akron on Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. ET in a game televised by the Big Ten Network.
