The Big Ten Network has finally released the TV schedule with the season already underway.

Lacrosse season is in full swing at this point (despite the fact the temperatures are still frigid on some days in various parts of the country). For the men’s, Maryland and Virginia are respectively atop the nation at No. 1 and 2 while Duke has already suffered a disappointing loss to an inferior opponent in Jacksonville — we’re back, baby!

But there is a lot more action to witness on the small screen; the Big Ten Network has finally released the television schedule for its conference matchups. The men’s league includes the powerhouse that is Maryland, fifth-ranked Rutgers, eighth-ranked Ohio State, eleventh-ranked Johns Hopkins, seventeenth-ranked Michigan, and Penn State.

As for the local Scarlet Knights, Rutgers takes on Hopkins at the beginning of April (hopefully both teams will still be high up in the rankings), Maryland on April 10, and Penn State on April 23. It’s unclear what Penn State’s status will be once that matchup rolls around — the Nittany Lions are off to a rough 1-3 start and sit in the basement of the Big Ten.
