Chalk up a victory for the Big Ten against a national power. Late tonight, Time Warner Cable and the Big Ten Network reached an agreement in principle allowing the nation’s second-largest cable company to carry the year-old network’s programming.

That means Buckeye fans who subscribe to Time Warner will be able to watch Saturday’s season opener against Youngstown State, and subsequent games carried by BTN, from the comfort of home.
