The Big Ten has finally announced the conference schedule for basketball this season and there are quite a lot of outstanding matchups (as there always is).

One of the best days on the schedule actually comes on Christmas Day (Dec. 25) and there are four great matchups.

The matchups are:

  • Wisconsin at Michigan State
  • Iowa at Minnesota
  • Michigan at Nebraska
  • Maryland at Purdue

At least one of these matchups (maybe two) will likely be between ranked teams and it will be must-see television for any college basketball fan across the country.

There are also two great matchups the following day as well:

  • Indiana at Illinois
  • Ohio State at Northwestern

Now fans have a reason to sneak away from those family parties and catch some great basketball action. Or better yet, gather around with the entire family for some B1G holiday action.

It’s shaping up to be a great year for college basketball across the Big Ten.
