In case you didn’t hear, the 2013-14 men’s basketball conference schedule was released Wednesday. In a conference as strong as the Big Ten is expected to be, there are several can’t-miss games. Like, Purdue hosting rival Indiana with revenge on its mind for last year’s blowout losses. Or, Nebraska opening up Pinnacle Bank Arena against reigning national runner-up Michigan. The list goes on.
The Big Ten announced its 2013-14 men’s basketball conference schedule Wednesday afternoon, and there will be at least 49 games televised by CBS Sports or an ESPN Network. Remaining network assignments will be announced at a later date.
The times and dates have been finalized for the 15th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge, which will be played Tuesday Dec. 3 and Wednesday, Dec. 4. See when and on what network your Big Ten team will play in this year’s event inside.
