Wrestling season kicks off Saturday, and no team in the country will be on television as often as Ohio State.

The program announced Monday that five regular-season duals will be televised nationally this season, including a rivalry scuffle against Michigan at Value City Arena inside the Schottenstein Center.

The Big Ten Network will broadcast four Buckeye matches, while No. 2 Ohio State’s top-10 non-conference tilt with No. 9 North Carolina State (Jan. 6; 6 p.m. ET) will air live on ESPN2.

BTN is set to showcase conference clashes vs. Wisconsin (Dec. 9; 4 p.m.), vs. Michigan (Jan. 25; 7 p.m.), at Illinois (Feb. 1; 9 p.m.) and vs. Penn State (Feb. 8; 8:30 p.m.). Additionally, BTN Plus online streaming will be available for home duals against Michigan State (Jan. 13; 2 p.m.) and Nebraska (Feb. 18; 2 p.m.).

In postseason action, BTN will air the Big Ten Championships live on Sunday, March 10. The entire two-day tournament streams live on BTN2Go/BTN Plus. ESPN and its family of networks will again broadcast all three days of the NCAA Championships (March 23-25) from PPG Paints Arena in downtown Pittsburgh.

Ohio State kicks off its dual-meet schedule Saturday versus the United States Naval Academy at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Md., the alma mater of senior captain Myles Martin. Streaming will be available via FloWrestling.
