Big Ten Super Saturday's history
First kicking off in 2016, the Michigan Wolverines were matched up with Penn State. For both hockey and basketball, Michigan was the winning team. For basketball, they won by just five points and scored six goals in hockey, resulting in a three-point lead. The first year, there were a combined total of more than 25,000 attendees.
The following year, the event was once again held in New York, featuring the Wisconsin Badgers and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for basketball. In 2017, the hockey teams were also the Wisconsin Badgers, but they were matched up against the Ohio State Buckeyes. Wisconsin won both match-ups.
In 2018, Ohio State and the Minnesota Golden Gophers will match-up for basketball while Minnesota will face Michigan State in hockey. This 'College Hoops & Hockey' is the first of its kind, this special event is in conjunction with The Big Ten Conference. Bringing together world-class universities, The Big Ten sponsors 28 official conference sports, including both male and female teams.
Held at Madison Square Garden, this venue is a world leader for live sports and entertainment, and is most commonly known for the franchises -- the New York Knicks, the New York Liberty, and the New York Rangers. Always drawing a crowd, the Big Ten Super Saturday is a must-attend event for all sports enthusiasts.
