Confession: I'm going to try my best to get you excited for Big Ten football on Sept. 25, but it'll be a challenge. I can't remember a weaker slate of games around the league.
Anyway, here are the kickoff times and TV plans for Sept. 25, as announced by the league office.
Bowling Green at Michigan, ESPN or ESPN2, noon ET
Ball State at Iowa, Big Ten Network, noon ET
Northern Colorado at Michigan State, Big Ten Network, noon ET
Toledo at Purdue, Big Ten Network, noon ET

Doesn't that get you excited?
