Dates are to be announced, but the Ohio State men’s basketball team now knows which Big Ten teams it will play next season and how many times.
Owing to the league’s 20-game, unbalanced conference schedule, each Big Ten team will play seven teams both at home and away, three teams at home only and three others only on the road. Here’s how Ohio State’s schedule will be structured:
Home only – Illinois, Purdue and Rutgers
Away only – Iowa, Michigan State and Northwestern
Home and away – Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, Maryland and Wisconsin

Further schedule details are to be announced, but a few games are already known.
Ohio State will open the season at home against Cincinnati and will also play West Virginia in Cleveland as well as an as-yet unknown opponent in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Buckeyes will also face Kentucky in Las Vegas as part of the annual CBSSports Classic.
