MADISON, Wis. – In what seems to be a yearly event, when Wisconsin and Ohio State meet in Columbus on Sept. 28, the game will be played in prime time on either ABC or ESPN. It will mark the fourth time in the last six seasons the two teams have played a night game, and the fifth time since 2003.

The 2013 game will kick off at 7 p.m. CT on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. This will be the ninth straight year Wisconsin has played at least one night game. Over the past five seasons, 16 of UW’s 67 games (24 percent) have been played at night.

Overall, Wisconsin owns a 37-25 record in night games. Dating back to 1995, the Badgers are 31-6 in their last 37 games at night. Against Ohio State, UW is 2-2 in night games. The average margin of victory for the winning team in those four games is 6.8 points.
