The Maryland men’s basketball team will open its 20-game Big Ten schedule by hosting Rutgers on Dec. 14.

The Big Ten on Tuesday released conference schedules for each team. The Terps’ slate also includes a Christmas Day game at Purdue, the program’s first on the holiday since defeating Iowa in overtime, 78-68, in 1984 at the Rainbow Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Maryland is scheduled to play home-and-home matchups with No. 7 Wisconsin, No. 24 Rutgers, No. 25 Michigan, Purdue, Minnesota, Penn State and Nebraska. The Terps are also slated for one-game matchups against No. 8 Illinois, Indiana and Northwestern at home in addition to No. 5 Iowa, No. 13 Michigan State, No. 23 Ohio State on the road.

Maryland also announced tipoff times for nonconference games against Old Dominion (Nov. 25, 2 p.m.), Navy (Nov. 27, 3 p.m.), Mount St. Mary’s (Nov. 29, 2 p.m.), Monmouth (Dec. 1, 7 p.m.) and George Mason (Dec. 4, 3 p.m.).

The Terps said Monday that fans will not be allowed at games this season “for the health and safety of our student-athletes and fans” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
