The Spartans will play 10 games on either ESPN or CBS this season, including both games against Michigan.

The television schedule for Big Ten Basketball games was released for CBS a couple days ago, and today it was released for ESPN and CBS. Here are MSU's games on those networks:

Date Home Team Away Team Time (Eastern) Network
12/30/14 MSU Maryland 5:00 PM ESPN2
1/8/15 Iowa MSU 7:00 PM ESPN or ESPN2
1/17/15 Maryland MSU 4:00 PM CBS
1/24/15 Nebraska MSU 4 PM/7 PM ESPN or ESPN2
2/1/15 MSU Michigan 1:00 PM CBS
2/7/15 MSU Illinois Noon ESPN or ESPN2
2/14/15 MSU Ohio State Noon ESPN or ESPN2
2/17/15 Michigan MSU 9:00 PM ESPN
3/1/15 Wisconsin MSU TBD CBS
3/7/15 Indiana MSU TBD ESPN or ESPN2

One small note: the Wisconsin-MSU game on March 1st isn't guaranteed to be on CBS as they can choose to air the Purdue-Ohio State game instead. However, given the importance of MSU-Wisky in previous seasons, I assumed that CBS would make the logical call and choose the Spartans and Badgers on that day.

The good news in this announcement is that there's no Spartan Big Ten games on ESPNU: if you have a standard cable package, you should have access to all the Spartans' Big Ten games assuming you get BTN. We're almost one month away from Midnight Madness, and even though football's still in full swing, basketball season is coming.
