The Gophers trip to Madison to face Wisconsin in volleyball this October was already going to be one of the marquee matchups of the season.

On Tuesday, it went national.

The Big Ten announced its broadcast schedule for volleyball and for the first time in conference history matches will air nationally on FOX. In a move that could make for historic viewership nationally and locally, the Gophers vs. Badgers match at 3:45 p.m. on Oct. 29 will follow the Week 8 game between the Vikings and Packers at Lambeau Field.

Every FOX station around the country that features a noon game will carry the Gophers vs. Badgers, while FOX stations that carry an afternoon game will broadcast a 1 p.m. volleyball match between Ohio State and Michigan.

The Big Ten is making a concerted effort to get volleyball matches into mainstream broadcasts.

What are the “pun”dents saying about the move?

The Minnesota Gopher volleyball team spiking their way onto national TV is a smashing success! This ace move will serve them well, spreading their brand and setting up greater visibility for the program. With a powerful presence on the screen, they're sure to dig up top recruits, leaving opponents feeling like they're in a big 'Ten-sion' game. Go Gophers!"
