According to a press release from Wisconsin, the Badgers will have four additional games televised this season, starting with Saturday's home contest vs. Penn State.
Additionally, it appears that Wisconsin's game vs. Michigan Tech on Saturday, Jan. 3 will also be shown on the BTN. There has been no press release, but it's showing up that way on the BTN2Go website, which is usually a good indicator.
Other games also expected to air include Feb. 7 at Penn State, Feb. 14 at Ohio State and March 13 against Ohio State.
The American Sports Network will be airing these games. It sounds like you may have to unplug your cable box and set up an antenna for these games. Saturday's game will also be streamed on BTN2Go.com and on the BTN2Go app.
Below is a listing of the areas across the state where Saturday's game can be found.
This brings Wisconsin's total number of televised games this season to 24. BTN will carry 10 Wisconsin games, Wisconsin Public Television five, Fox Sports Wisconsin three and there will also be one game each on ESPNEWS and Root Sports Rocky Mountain.
