Week 2 of the Big Ten football season is upon us, and we have a full slate on Saturday with all 14 teams playing nonconference games.

For the first time in 27 years, we have two games where we have a showdown of top-15 teams, No. 12 Oregon at No. 3 Ohio State and No. 10 Iowa at No. 9 Iowa State. 

Several other teams are looking forward to bouncing back from tough losses, most notably Indiana and Northwestern, and others are looking to stay sharp and get to 2-0, like Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State.

Here is how to watch all 14 games on Saturday, and it's worth getting a head start on finding your games on TV because there are several games on the Big Ten Network at the same time, and hunting for the network's secondary stations can be a challenge at times.
