Fall Out Boy will star in NBC Sports‘ “B1G Saturday Night” show open this season.
The show open – with a chorus of “Here Comes Saturday Night” – will debut on September 2 ahead of the season-opening West Virginia-Penn State game at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock and will also feature football players, cheerleaders, bands and fans from Big Ten Conference schools.
In addition, Fall Out Boy will headline the NBC Sports and Peacock Big Ten Football promotional campaign, appearing across NBCUniversal platforms throughout the summer and fall.
“B1G Saturday Night” marks the first time ever that Big Ten Football will have a dedicated weekly primetime game on a national broadcast network. Peacock will also serve as the exclusive home for nine additional Big Ten Football games this season.
Fall Out Boy’s eighth studio album, So Much (For) Stardust, debuted as the No. 1 rock album chart upon its March 24 release.
The multi-platinum and Grammy award-nominated rock band just wrapped the North American leg of their “So Much For (Tour) Dust” headlining tour. The tour will continue in Europe and the U.K. this fall.
