The Big Ten has announced that 44 men’s basketball games will be carried on CBS Sports and ESPN this season.

CBS Sports will televise eight weekend games, a release from the league office said on Tuesday, and 36 Big Ten matchups will appear on either ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU.

Iowa is scheduled to appear on an ESPN network seven times, including its Big Ten/ACC Challenge game against Clemson on Nov. 29 at 8:15 p.m. on ESPNU.

The Hawkeyes — who have 11 returning players on their roster heading into the season — will have five of their Big Ten games on ESPNU as well, including the team’s first game against Nebraska on Jan. 26.

Head coach Fran McCaffery’s squad will host Wisconsin at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. That matchup will be broadcast nationally on either ESPN or ESPN2.

Iowa’s home game against Indiana on Feb. 19 is one of three CBS can choose from as part of its “wild-card” selections. That game’s time and network will be announced at a later date.

The remainder of Iowa’s conference schedule will be released today.
