COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio State University women's volleyball team will be on the big stage of national television at least five times during the 2017 Big Ten schedule with potential for further spotlighting via four Big Ten Network `wildcard' matches to be determined.
The first three nationally-televised contests for Ohio State are on the road, competing on BTN at Purdue (Sept. 23), at Michigan (Sept. 29) and at Illinois (Oct. 13). St. John Arena later hosts the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Oct. 18 for another BTN broadcast. The season's second clash versus `that team up north' will take place in Columbus and telecast by ESPNU (Oct. 22).
In addition, BYUtv is set to air the Buckeyes' clash with the Cougars on Aug. 26 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
