The 2012-13 schedule for the Penn State men's basketball team was released when the Big Ten announced tip times and television arrangements for the upcoming season on Wednesday.
The Nittany Lions, who went 12-20 last season with a 4-14 conference record, will be broadcasted on national television at least 23 times, with at least nine appearances on the ESPN networks and 12 on the Big Ten Network.
Out of the contests being televised by ESPN, the most highly anticipated matchups are dates with preseason No.6-ranked North Carolina State in the Puerto Rico Tip-off on Nov. 15 and a home game against Big Ten foe Ohio State on Jan. 26 at the Bryce Jordan Center.
These two games are the only ones currently scheduled on ESPN's major outlets.
At least seven Lions' basketball games will be featured on ESPNU, including meetings with Boston College, Northwestern, and Nebraska.
In the last five seasons, the Lions have made 40 appearances on the ESPN Networks, with the team already picking up one more game than 2011-12's eight broadcasts.
In terms of the conference's big picture, every Big Ten regular season and tournament game will be broadcasted nationally for the sixth consecutive year.
