The Big Ten Network announced their slate of night football games for the 2015 season on Monday, and it includes a big one for Gopher fans.  The "No November Night Game" edict is officially dead as the Gophers will travel to Iowa on November 14th for a prime time game under the lights at Kinnick Stadium for the Battle for Floyd.  Iowa really wants to try and win that pig back it appears.  If the Gophers can win Floyd for the third season in a row in back to back seasons in what should be a highly anticipated night game, that might be enough for Iowa to finally send Kirk Ferentz packing.

It will be the Gophers first Big Ten night game since they hosted Ohio State at TCF Bank Stadium in 2010.  Let's hope this goes a bit better than that one did.

Also notable in the schedule was the lack of any broadcast information for the Gopher's Thursday night opener against presumed #2 TCU.  That most likely means that that game is headed for one of ESPN's family of networks.

The rest of the BTN Night Game schedule includes:

Friday September 4th

Kent State at Illinois

Saturday, Sept. 12

South Alabama at Nebraska

Florida International at Indiana

Saturday, Sept. 19

Rutgers at Penn State

Pittsburgh at Iowa

Saturday, September 26

Ball State at Northwestern

Saturday, October 10

Gophers.  Hawkeyes.  Floyd. Drunken Iowans.  This could be fun...
