The Washington Huskies’ game at 3 p.m. Saturday against Illinois, at Chicago’s Soldier Field, will be broadcast live on the Big Ten Network.

Many on the West Coast don’t have the network as part of their regular cable packages, but in most cases the network can be ordered as part of a special package.

For Comcast customers, the upgraded package that includes the BTN is $9.99 per month. There is no obligation to keep the package for an entire month, according to a Comcast customer services representative.

Most other cable operators offer similar upgrades. For details on DirecTV pricing and ordering information, visit
