The pregame show starts at 6:30 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go before switching to FOX at 7:30 p.m. for the remainder of the pregame and the game broadcast.

BTN/BTN2Go will also have a postgame show following the FOX postgame show.

The Hawkeyes, who clinched a perfect 12-0 regular season with Friday's win at Nebraska, are making their inaugural trip to the Big Ten title game, while the Spartans are making their third appearance in the event's five years.

It's a great pairing, one senior writer Tom Dienhart thinks could be the most anticipated matchup in the event's short history.
