Time for Rutgers football home opener vs. Howard announced

PISCATAWAY, New Jersey -- The first Rutgers football home game in the Chris Ash era is slated for high noon.

The Big Ten Network announced its television schedule for the first three weeks of the 2016 college football season, and the Scarlet Knights' Sept. 10 affair against Howard was set for a 12 p.m. (EST) kickoff.

In addition, Big Ten TV administration commissioner Mark Rudner announced on Twitter that Rutgers' Sept. 17 home game against New Mexico is also slated for 12 p.m. and will air on ESPNews.

Rudner said times and TV information for Big Ten games on Sept. 24 won't be determined until Sept. 12 at the earliest, which means the info on Rutgers' clash versus Iowa that day won't be known until two games into the season.

Rutgers' home opener will come one week after Ash makes his head coaching debut in a 2 p.m. clash at Washington. The Bison open the week before the Rutgers trip against another Big Ten foe, remaining in the D.C. area to play at Maryland on Sept. 3.
