New, 4 comments

BTN has released the upcoming 2015-16 men's basketball television schedule.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

BTN has officially announced its 2015-16 men's basketball television coverage and the conference should once again be set for an extremely exciting season. Many are projected the conference to be extremely strong next season and as such, there should be plenty of coverage and great games televised on the network.

Before jumping into the schedule itself, there is of course, one major thing that is interesting to look at for the conference and that's each team's appearances on BTN. Many of the games that do not appear on BTN will be broadcast nationally, which should give a feel for how the teams are perceived heading into the upcoming season. Here is how the teams appear.

2015-16 Big Ten Conference Appearances On BTN:

  • 16 - Minnesota
  • 12 - Northwestern, Rutgers
  • 11 - Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Penn State
  • 10 - Purdue
  • 8 - Michigan, Ohio State, Wisconsin
  • 6 - Michigan State
  • 5 - Indiana, Maryland
With that in mind, here's a look at the Big Ten Network's television coverage for the upcoming 2015-16 season. It should be an exciting conference season with plenty of great matchups.
