HELP FINDING THE GAME ON TV
ABC Regional / ESPN Reverse Mirror -- Games listed on the schedule as ABC/ESPN (or ABC/ESPN2) are regionally broadcast on ABC. In regions of the country where the game is not on ABC, it will be broadcast on ESPN (or ESPN2). Some cable companies may carry the mirror game on only the ESPN (or ESPN2) standard definition channel and not the high definition channel.
Big Ten Network -- When the Big Ten Network broadcasts multiple games in the same time slot, the game of primary interest in a region will be carried on the network's main channel. The Big Ten Network offers the other games in the time slot to its affiliates for airing on "extra football game channels." Check the Big Ten Network's Gamefinder to determine where to find a game in your channel lineup.

Fans can bring a small transistor radio into Michigan Stadium as long as it meets the requirements specified in the prohibited items list.
