Finally, the Big Ten has announced its conference schedule. Well, part of it.
On Tuesday, the conference unveiled its nationally televised matchups on ESPN and CBS for the 2011-12 campaign.
Minnesota will appear on the networks (or their affiliates) three times during the conference slate: a Feb. 9 home matchup against Wisconsin, a Feb. 14 tilt against Ohio State at Williams Arena and another home game against Indiana Feb. 25 or 26, one of the CBS/ESPN wildcard games, according to the league's release.
The Big Ten expects to release its full conference schedule Wednesday, according to Valerie Todryk Krebs, conference spokesperson.
