ESPN has continued it’s unveiling of it’s slate of college basketball content by releasing their entire Super Tuesday schedule on Wednesday afternoon.
The schedule starts on January 7 and extends until March 4, covering both SEC and Big Ten games. Of the nine total SEC contests, five of the games will feature Kentucky with three will be played by Florida. For the Big Ten, Indiana surprisingly be shown four times, with Michigan State and Ohio State being shown three times each.
The disbursement of games among the two conferences gives fans an idea of how the conference races are anticipated to play out. With the SEC, it’ll be predominantly a two-horse race with Florida and Kentucky atop the standings. The only SEC broadcast on Super Tuesday that doesn’t involve one of those two is LSU vs. Tennessee.
With the Big Ten, you have a large array of teams featured, ranging from Indiana to Ohio State to Michigan to Iowa to Wisconsin to Michigan, signifying the wide open race expected. Like the last handful of seasons, predicting the Big Ten is near impossible. While Michigan won the title last year, they lost Nik Stauskas, Mitch McGary, and Gary Harris and Ohio State brought in a highly-touted recruiting class. Add in the newcomers in Maryland and Rutgers and the race is wide open.
Let us know down below who YOU think is going to win the SEC and Big Ten this year! Will Michigan repeat? Is it a two-horse race between Kentucky and Florida?
