The NBA is currently located in the bubble in Orlando but the NCAA will likely utilize that same bubble this fall for several early season tournaments. That means that several Big Ten teams may see themselves playing in Florida at some point this season.
We now know that one of those teams will play at least several games in Orlando.

Jimmy V Classic
Myrtle Beach Invitational
Diamond Head Classic
It was announced recently that one of the events that will take place in the bubble is the Champion’s Classic, with Michigan State set to face Duke in the event. The Spartans have been a part of the early season event since 2011.
Michigan State will also participate in the Orlando Invitational, an event that will also include Gonzaga, Auburn, Xavier, Saint Louis, Boise State, Belmont and Siena.
As expected, it’s being reported that fans will not be in attendance for the events set to take place inside the bubble.
