COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State’s home match vs. Virginia Tech on Nov. 17 kick-starts the Big Ten Wrestling national television broadcast slate, aired live on BTN at noon ET. The Buckeyes are destined for the national stage six times during the 2019-20 regular season, including a non-conference scuffle with Arizona State shown on Fox Sports 1 (FS1).

This season marks the most wrestling coverage in BTN history — a 40% increase from a year ago.

“The Big Ten is home to the most dominant wrestling programs in the country and that distinction has made wrestling the fourth most-watched sport on BTN,” said BTN President François McGillicuddy. “Our goal is to continue to showcase and amplify Big Ten Wrestling, including an increase in our live event broadcasts, a commitment to original storytelling and an investment in on-campus digital content.”

Additionally, BTN+ will carry nearly 100 matches, also a new record-high. A portion of those streamed events will be televised on delay on BTN as part of the Student U initiative.
