2017-18 Non-Conference Schedule // Season Ticket Information

The full slate of games for the Minnesota men's basketball team has been set, as the Big Ten Conference released the conference schedules for each of the 14 member institutions Wednesday.

Game times and television broadcast information will be announced at a later date.

Minnesota will begin Big Ten play at home, hosting Rutgers on Sunday, December 3. Two days later, the Gophers will face their first road environment at Nebraska (Tuesday, Dec. 5).

With a step back into non-conference play, the Maroon and Gold will not face a conference foe again until Wednesday, Jan. 3 as Minnesota hosts Illinois. As part of the Gophers' only two-game homestand in conference, three days later the Barn will welcome Indiana (Saturday, Jan. 6).

The Gophers will open a stretch of six out of eight games away from Williams Arena on Wednesday, Jan. 10 as they travel to Rosemont, Ill., to face Northwestern. The second of two straight Saturday home games comes on Jan. 13 against Purdue, before the Gophers embark on a three-game road trip. Minnesota will play three straight on the East Coast, traveling to Penn State (Monday, Jan. 15) and Maryland (Thursday, Jan. 18) before taking part in the BTN Super Saturday doubleheader at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Jan. 20. The Gophers will serve as the home team against Ohio State in the two teams' lone matchup this year.

Minnesota's first repeat opponent comes on Tuesday, Jan. 23, when the Gophers host Northwestern at the Barn. The last extended road trip comes one week later, with dates at Iowa (Tuesday, Jan. 30) and Michigan (Saturday, Feb. 3).

The Gophers will alternate home-and-away for the final six games of the regular season. Minnesota hosts Nebraska (Tuesday, Feb. 6) and travels to Indiana (Friday, Feb. 9) before playing host to Michigan State on Tuesday, Feb. 13. The Gophers close out the regular season with two straight rivalry games, at Wisconsin on Monday, Feb. 19 and home for Iowa two days later (Wednesday, Feb. 21) before traveling to West Lafayette on Sunday, Feb. 25 to face Purdue.

The Gophers will then return to the Big Apple once more, taking part in the Big Ten Tournament from February 28 to March 4 at Madison Square Garden.
