BTN today announced the most-compelling Big Ten men’s basketball non-conference television schedule in network history.

The slate features six matchups of teams that appeared in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, including the defending national champion Villanova Wildcats at Purdue on Nov. 14 as part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games and the 2014 national champion Connecticut Huskies at Ohio State on Dec. 10. The network’s schedule includes two Final Four teams from each of the last three seasons.

Premier matchups also include Oklahoma, fresh off a Final Four appearance, traveling to Madison to take on the Badgers and the Oklahoma State Cowboys visiting College Park to take on the Maryland Terrapins on Dec. 3. In-state rivalry games will feature Creighton and Nebraska on Dec. 7 and Butler and Indiana in the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis on Dec. 17. The State Farm Chicago Legends at the United Center will feature Dayton vs Northwestern and BYU vs. Illinois also on Dec. 17.

In addition, as part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games on BTN, Providence visits Ohio State and Big East Tournament champion Seton Hall travels to Iowa on Nov. 17, while St. John’s visits Minnesota on Nov. 18.

All games can be streamed via the web, smartphones, tablets and connected devices on BTN2Go, BTN’s digital extension.
