On Monday morning, Big Ten fans got some exciting news as BTN officially announced its TV schedule for the upcoming non-conference schedule. With so many exciting games this year, it should make for a fantastic schedule.

Additionally, thanks to some conflicts on other networks (namely ESPN), some absolutely massive games are getting pushed to BTN this year. In particular, Purdue’s matchup with Villanova (my top Big Ten non-con game) will be on BTN thanks to a conflict with ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

But with no further wait, here’s the upcoming schedule:
