Big Ten men’s basketball schedule announced
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A trio of high-profile December matchups and three-game February homestand highlight Nebraska’s 2022-23 Big Ten Conference schedule released Thursday morning.
The Huskers will be tested early, as seven of the Huskers’ first eight Big Ten games are against NCAA Tournament teams from a season ago. The slate begins on Wednesday, Dec. 7, as the Huskers will travel to Indiana for their Big Ten opener. It will mark the third time in Fred Hoiberg’s four seasons that the Huskers begin conference play at Indiana.
The Huskers will return to Pinnacle Bank Arena on Saturday, Dec. 10, for their conference home opener against a Purdue squad which reached the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2022. NU’s final Big Ten game of 2022 takes place on Thursday, Dec. 29, when the Huskers host Iowa.
Nebraska’s January schedule is road heavy with six of the Huskers’ nine contests on the road, including matchups at Michigan State (Jan. 3), Purdue (Jan. 13) and Illinois (Jan. 31). NU also travels to Minnesota (Jan. 7), Penn State (Jan. 21) and Maryland (Jan. 28) and hosts Illinois (Jan. 10), Ohio State (Jan. 18) and Northwestern (Jan. 24) at PBA.
In February, the Huskers play five of their seven games at PBA including four weekend home matchups. The first half of the month features home games against Penn State (Feb. 5) and Wisconsin (Feb. 11) as well as trips to Michigan (Feb. 8) and Rutgers (Feb. 11). Nebraska will close out the home schedule with a three-game homestand, taking on Maryland (Feb. 19), Minnesota (Feb. 25) and Michigan State (Feb. 28).
The Huskers will close the regular season at Iowa on Sunday, March 5, before heading to Chicago for the 2023 Big Ten Basketball Tournament.
Start times and television information for all of Nebraska’s 2022-23 games will be announced later this month.
