On Wednesday, Nov. 11, BTN will debut a unique look at the country’s premier volleyball conference. B1G Volleyball Extravaganza, beginning at 7 P.M. ET, features live look-ins at all 14 Big Ten women’s volleyball teams playing in seven conference matches throughout the evening. The whip-around coverage will join the Purdue at Maryland, Indiana at Rutgers and No.18 Illinois at No. 12 Ohio State matches in progress at 7 P.M. ET, and continue to spotlight additional matches for three hours throughout the night. Full matches can also be streamed via the web, smartphones, tablets and connected devices on BTN Plus on BTN2Go, BTN’s digital extension.
November in Big Ten volleyball means the title race has taken shape and the NCAA tournament push is well underway. Contenders have emerged and the early season surprises have faded into memory as the 10-week conference season pushes onward.
BTN volleyball announcer Mike Wolf is back with his weekly Big Ten Volleyball Report on BTN.com this season. It was a wild opening week of conference play so let’s take a quick look back before we preview three big matches coming up.
On Sept. 30, BTN Originals breaks new ground with the second installment of their one-hour series “B1G Close Up” – which will feature the Sept. 23 volleyball match between Wisconsin and Penn State. Wisconsin entered the match ranked No. 16, looking to take down No. 1 Penn State.
Eight Big Ten teams are ranked in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll, released Monday, headlined by defending national champion and No. 1 Penn State.
