Come watch along with us as the Wisconsin Badgers face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in NYC!

Jon's live in Madison Square Garden covering the game for us, and he'll also be tweeting from @B5Q for both games. You'll see the tweets below, and you can also follow us if you're so inclined.

For a preview of the weekend's festivities, Jon wrote a nice piece earlier in the week:

New York City gets a new icon this weekend as Wisconsin travels to the City That Never Sleeps for the Big Ten's annual Super Saturday showcase at Madison Square Garden.

The World's Most Famous Arena sees the men's basketball team square off against Rutgers at noon ET and the men's hockey team take on Ohio State at 7 p.m. ET.

The doubleheader, which saw Michigan and Penn State meet up last year in both sports, is part of a series that will rotate Big Ten teams through 2019.

In addition to being a premier event for traveling fans and New York alumni alike, the showcase is a chance for the Big Ten to continue its eastward expansion. Did you know that MSG is hosting the Big Ten men's basketball tournament in 2018? Jim Boeheim must be spinning in his grave.

Jon also compiled a list of bars to watch and celebrate at, so be sure to check out the piece.
