Big Ten Network To Air Classic & Encore Programming During Coronavirus Cancellations

If you’re a sports fan, this past week has probably been a disheartening experience. With basically all athletic events being canceled for the foreseeable future, sports fans and casual TV-channel-browsers alike have been deprived of content. Luckily, the Big Ten Network is stepping up to the plate to ease a bit of that pain for Big Ten and Penn State fans in particular.

BTN announced that starting Thursday, March 18 the network will re-air both classic showdowns and encore content on its network in lieu of normal sports programming.

The classic programming will include the most recent Big Ten wrestling championships, as well as a handful of selected men’s basketball games. The special programming will conclude on March 25, when “The Big Ten’s Best: Basketball Tournament Moments” airs at 2 p.m.

You can view the network’s full programming schedule on its website, and even filter it to only show events relevant to Penn State. The full list of upcoming classic & encore shows is listed below
