CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Illinois says its Nov. 1 football game this fall at Ohio State will be played at night.

The university said Tuesday that the game will be played at 7 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

Illinois hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2007's 28-21 win. That game was also played at night on the road.

Tuesday's announcement was the first regarding TV plans for Illini football this fall.

Illinois opens the season Aug. 30 at home against Youngstown State.
