The Big Ten Conference released the 2014-15 mens basketball schedule on Thursday.
The Wisconsin Badgers, who return seven of the top eight players from last season’s Final Four run, will play four of their first six games at the Kohl Center. But they’ll also play four of their final six games on the road, including the last two at Minnesota and at Ohio State.
The Badgers finished second in the Big Ten last season at 12-6. They’ll open league play on New Year’s Eve against Penn State at the Kohl Center.
The Badgers open their season Nov. 5 with an exhibition against UW-Parkside. They’ll host Northern Kentucky in their regular season opener on Nov. 14.
Wisconsin will host Duke on Dec. 3 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and will travel to Marquette a few days later (Dec. 6).
