The University of Minnesota men’s basketball team will play in front of a national television audience at least 23 times this season, as the Big Ten Conference announced Thursday the television and game time information for all 14 schools.
Minnesota will be featured on the Big Ten Network 14 times, while making five appearances on new conference television partner Fox Sports 1. Three games will be on the ESPN or ESPN2 networks, while a national broadcast audience will see the Golden Gophers in action once on the FOX network.
Four additional home games will be broadcast over the internet via BTN Plus.
Additional game time and television information will be announced next week for the Gophers’ road game at Providence (Nov. 13) and home game vs. Miami (Nov. 29). Those are part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games and Big Ten/ACC Challenge, respectively.
Minnesota’s road game at Arkansas, along with neutral games against UMass and Alabama in the Barclays Center Classic, will be announced at a later date.
