MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin volleyball team will make six appearances on television in 2014, including an appearance on ESPN2, the Big Ten Conference office announced today.

The Badgers take on Nebraska on ESPN2 on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 4 p.m. in the UW Field House. Wisconsin will also appear on the Big Ten Network three times, including its conference opener against Penn State on Sept. 24. The match will be a replay of the 2013 NCAA Championship match that the Nittany Lions won 3-1. UW will also appear on BTN at Minnesota on Oct. 15 and at Purdue on Oct. 29.

In addition, the Badgers make two appearances on the Pac-12 Networks as their matches against USC and Washington at the Pac-12/Big Ten Showcase in Seattle will air live.

BTN will televise 27 contests across the conference this season, while at least 82 matches are scheduled to appear on BTN Plus, the network’s subscription-based streaming platform (formerly BTDN). All of UW’s home matches, with the exception of Penn State, will be streamed live.

Built into the BTN schedule are four wildcard dates, allowing BTN to select matchups near the end of the Big Ten’s regular season. The network will air a doubleheader featuring Wisconsin at Minnesota and Illinois at Iowa on Wednesday, Oct. 15.

No. 6 Wisconsin kicks off the 2014 season this Friday and Saturday, competing in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge in Minneapolis.  Wisconsin and No. 12 Minnesota represent the Big Ten and take on Louisville and Notre Dame from the ACC.
