BTN is taking the show on the road to New York City on Jan. 29th and 30th for the inaugural Super Saturday, a Big Ten basketball & hockey doubleheader at Madison Square Garden featuring Michigan and Penn State. BTN will provide complete coverage of both contests, including live game telecasts and studio shows originating from both Manhattan and on-site.

?We are thrilled to get the games at Madison Square Garden, and we will use the opportunity to connect with the many Big Ten fans we have in Manhattan,? said BTN President Mark Silverman.

#BTNinNYC begins at 5 PM ET Friday, Jan. 29, when the network transforms a New York City favorite, Slate Restaurant & Bar, into its studio for a special, 90-minute edition of BTN Live in front of Big Ten fans and alumni. Host Dave Revsine and analyst Jon Crispin will be joined by correspondent Taylor Rooks to preview Saturday?s action and other news affecting the conference. Special guests for the show include Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany; Penn State men?s basketball coach Pat Chambers; Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson; and Jimmy King, one of Michigan?s Fab Five and former NBA player.

BTN?s pregame coverage Saturday begins at 11:30 a.m. ET courtside with the B1G Tip-Off Show, presented by Auto-Owners Insurance. Revsine and Crispin will be joined by former Michigan point guard Spike Albrecht; Terry Mills, a member of Michigan?s 1989 National Championship team and former NBA player; and others prior to the noon ET men?s basketball tip-off. Gus Johnson and Crispin will have the call, with Rick Pizzo reporting courtside. The Wolverines, led by Duncan Robinson and Derrick Walton Jr., currently sport a 15-5 record as they battle it out on the big stage with the Nittany Lions and Brandon Taylor, who is averaging 16.2 PPG this season.

The nightcap of the doubleheader starts with the B1G Hockey Pregame at 6:30 p.m. ET, before the 7 p.m. ET matchup between No. 6 Michigan and No. 15 Penn State. Dan Kelly and Paul Caponigri will have the call, along with Pizzo reporting from the ice. Michigan and Penn State are among the nation?s top five teams in scoring. The B1G Finale, presented by Reese?s, follows the hockey game at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET, and will include postgame segments from both of the Super Saturday matchups at the Garden.
