The Big Ten and ESPN announced the television schedule and tip times for the upcoming conference basketball season earlier today.

Indiana will play a total of eight (with an option for nine) conference games on ESPN or CBS with the rest airing on the Big Ten Network.

The Hoosiers will be on CBS for two Big Ten games: vs. Michigan State on Sunday, Jan. 27 and at Ohio State on Sunday, Feb. 10.

ESPN’s family of networks will carry six Indiana games, highlighted by a February 2nd, 9 p.m. game with Michigan, which will be a part of ESPN’s College GameDay.

In addition to the Big Ten schedule, Indiana also announced tip times and television information for non-conference games. Indiana’s game against Butler in the Crossroads Classic on Saturday, Dec. 15 will be on CBS and a home meeting with Florida Atlantic on Friday, Dec. 21 will air on ESPN2.

“We always want our games to be seen in as many households as possible,” Tom Crean said in a release.  “I thought many of our games last year were among the best in the country and we are excited to have the opportunity to show the nation the energy our fans generate in Assembly Hall.”

    With success (or anticipated success) comes Big time TV exposure. What better way to sell the Hoosier program to future recruits. Of course..the Hoosiers can’t stink it up in any one game..and I don’t think they’ll be doing that much this year. Can’t buy the kind of exposure this TV schedule give IU and its program.

    FANTASTIC exposure for recruiting so long as the team does their part and beats up on some teams. I absolutely love that they’ll be playing Butler on CBS. They have the best coverage. The more games on CBS, the better.

    BAncelet2, I live in the West, too, and my experience has been that the CBS broadcast is usually a regional game. Sometimes, though, if the game has teams in the top 25 and there isn’t a hot “local” game, they opt for the game with the top 25 teams instead of the more local game. I usually call our CBS affiliate a week or two before to see if they can tell me what game they are carrying so I know ahead of time. With IU probably being in the top 25 all season, we might have a good chance seeing them on the CBS broadcasts. In your case, it might be a matter of whether or not UCLA is playing the same day.

    I watch all the Hoosier basketball I can so the only dissappointment I have is that there are 2 games that I won’t be able to watch because they are on a subscription basis – the and games. I just wish ALL their games were televised, along with hoosier hysteria.

    For those of you who use Outlook for calendaring and live in the Pacific Time Zone, feel free to download this CSV file I created: (and have for the past 7 years). If you’re not sure how to import Google/Bing “Outlook import CSV” (remove the paratheses). I add the category “IU” to each game so worse case scenario you can group by IU and delete all of the appointments if you don’t like the results. Go IU!
