Ohio State's Big Ten basketball schedule for the 2023-24 season has arrived.

With dates set for each of the team's 20 conference contests, the Buckeyes now know their complete schedule for the upcoming campaign.

Ohio State kicks off its league action in December with two standalone conference games before it dives full-time into league play, as has been the standard in recent years. The Buckeyes take on Minnesota on Dec. 3 at home before heading to Penn State on Dec. 9.

The Buckeyes will see seven of their Big Ten opponents twice during the regular season and six on one occasion. They will play both home and road games with Minnesota, Penn State, Rutgers, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nebraska.

The Hoosiers posted the best conference result of those teams last year, finishing in a tie for second in the league standings at 12-8 in conference play. They were 23-12 overall.

Ohio State will face last year's Big Ten regular season and tournament champion Purdue once and will get the Boilermakers at home on Feb. 18. Other standalone home conference games include Illinois and Maryland, while the Buckeyes will see Northwestern, Iowa and Michigan State a single time on the road.

Last year, Ohio State went 5-15 in Big Ten regular season play to finish 13th of 14 teams in the conference, part of a 16-19 overall record. However, it did go on a three-game winning streak to reach the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament before suffering an 80-66 loss to Purdue.

The Buckeyes open their 2023-24 season on Nov. 6 against Oakland.
