Michigan State basketball fans can now mark their calendars with the start times and television designations of almost every game this season. They can thank the Big Ten, which released both sets of information for the 2017-18 season on Thursday afternoon.
Michigan State’s season opener against North Florida will air Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network, one of nine MSU games on BTN this season. The Spartans’ biggest non-conference contest comes four days later against Duke in the Champions Classic. That game tips at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
In addition, the Spartans will have games on CBS, FOX, ESPN2, FOX Sports 1 and BTN Plus.

Additionally, several games without tip times or TV designations have been updated on opponents’ sites. According to Notre Dame, the Spartans’ Big Ten/ACC Challenge matchup on Nov. 30 will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on ESPN. And per Oakland, the Dec. 16 game at Little Caesars Arena will tip off at 4 p.m. on ESPN2.
Tip time for the Oakland game remains unannounced, as do TV designations for the final two rounds of the PK80 Invitational.
So, don’t finalize all of your plans during basketball season just yet.
