It’s been a wild day of college football. Not only have there been lots of upsets, but there have been plenty of overtimes and rain delays that have affected TV broadcasting schedules. That’s going to require some fans to doublecheck their local listings to confirm their favorite team is playing where they’re supposed to.

For example, viewers tuning in to FS1 for the Nebraska-Northern Illinois game at 7:05 p.m. ET will have to locate Fox Business instead.

The reason? Blame the Iowa – Iowa State game, which was under rain delay for hours. That’s finally getting underway and keeping their spot on FS1. That said, if that game ends before Nebraska – NIU, it will likely shift back into its original spot.

As you might imagine, that’s a move that will upset some people, specifically fans of Nebraska and Northern Illinois, but it’s not unheard of. Fox has a history of moving games over to Fox Business when delays necessitate it. As for why they go to Fox Business and not FS2, there is already regularly scheduled sports-related programming set there that can’t be moved. In fact, the Pac-12 actually has an agreement with Fox where the overflow of their games must go on Fox Business Channel and not FS2.

The tricky part for some is actually finding Fox Business Network in their lineup. If they can’t find it, viewers can also stream the game on Fox Sports Go. Though it should be noted that Fox Business Network is actually in more households than FS2, which is also why it’s Fox’s dumping channel of preference when these situations come up.

And for the record, Iowa State folks are having a lot of fun with the realization that Nebraska football got bumped for them.
