Today’s game

Our software lists the upcoming TV schedule with streaming options below.

This team does not have a televised game scheduled in the next two weeks.

Important channels

Under the Big Ten’s new TV contract, football games can air on CBS, FOX, NBC, FS1, Peacock, and Big Ten Network.

FS1 and Big Ten Network will usually feature less sought after Big Ten matchups, while FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff airs the week’s premier Big Ten game. Important Big Ten matchups will also air on CBS and NBC, and FOX has the TV rights to broadcast the Big Ten Championship game. Each season, Peacock has the rights to 8 exclusive Big Ten football games in a style of game modeled after Apple and Peacock’s deals with MLB.

Reader Note: Although Bally Sports Indiana and NBC Sports Chicago don’t carry Purdue Football, I have added them to the channel table in case some Purdue fans are also Pacers or Chicago sports fans. For fans in Indiana and surrounding regions, each of the live TV streaming services listed below carries NFL games, including the Bears and Colts.

Ryan Walters recruiting: what we are hearing

Ryan Walters takes over for Jeff Brohm who left Purdue for his alma mater, Louisville. The key to Walter’s success will be on the recruiting trail as his staff tries to rebuild a program that has historically had success in Big Ten play against ranked opponents. Director of recruiting at 247 Sports, Steve Wiltfong, has said several times on various recruiting podcasts that Walters is coming out of the gates swinging and is in the mix for New Haven, Indiana based 5 star WR Mylan Graham. Will Walters turn Purdue into must-see TV on the gridiron? Only time will tell.

Top picks
