After ESPN/ABC unveiled its prime-time football schedule last week, the Big Ten Network followed suit on Tuesday.

The Minnesota Gophers were missing from the schedule.

As it stands now, the Gophers are one of five Big Ten teams not scheduled for a prime-time game this season. Wisconsin, Iowa, Purdue and Indiana were also left off.

Minnesota is slated to kickoff the 2014 with a Thursday night opener on Aug. 28 against Eastern Illinois. However, network assignments and game times have not yet been fully set for the season's opening weekend.

Additional prime-time games could still be announced in the next few weeks.

Ohio State and Nebraska both have a conference-high four games scheduled for prime time.
