Projected in the Top 10 in most preseason polls, the Maryland men’s basketball team will play four games on national network television this season, the most since the Terps joined the Big Ten in 2014-15. The league announced the starting times and broadcast partners Thursday.

Maryland is scheduled to face Indiana in Bloomington on Jan. 26 and Ohio State in Columbus on Feb. 23, with both games on CBS. The Terps also have two noon games on Fox, hosting the Hoosiers on Jan. 4 and Michigan on March 8.
