Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin Badgers football team are heading into its bye week with a commendable 3-1 record, having made an impressive 1-0 start in Big Ten play. However, when UW returns for Week 6, they’ll face a rather unconventional streaming situation that fans must adapt to.

On October 7th, Wisconsin will take on Rutgers in a matchup streamed exclusively on Peacock, a popular streaming platform. This game will kick off at 11 AM Central Time, and it’s safe to say that casual fans might be left scrambling if they don’t plan ahead.

Peacock, known for its wide range of content, is making strides in the world of sports streaming. While it might not be the traditional platform for college football games, it offers an opportunity for fans to explore new ways of enjoying their favorite sport.

What This Means for Wisconsin Football Fans

For Wisconsin football enthusiasts, this means making sure they have access to the Peacock streaming service before the game day arrives. It’s a chance to venture beyond the usual cable or network broadcast and try out a different medium for following their beloved Badgers.

The team’s bye week provides fans with ample time to prepare and ensure they don’t miss the action when Wisconsin takes on Rutgers via the Peacock platform. As the Badgers continue their journey in the Big Ten, it’s worth considering adding the platform at $5.99 a month — because they’ll also air several basketball games this winter.

So, mark your calendars, tell your parents ahead of time, and get ready to cheer for Wisconsin Badgers football on Peacock when they face Rutgers in Week 6.
