On Friday, UB men’s basketball announced three of its games will air on national television and have been moved to Friday night slots.

The Bulls will bring in the new year playing at Akron, a contest that will air on CBS Sports Network. 

UB will then make its second appearance on the CBS Sports Network at home against Bowling Green on Jan. 15. 

The times for the CBS Sports Network’s games are still TBA.

To close out the month of January, UB will play at home on ESPNU against Ohio on Jan. 29. The game is scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m..

Last season, UB was a combined 3-3 against Akron, Bowling Green and Ohio. 

The national spotlight is not new for the Bulls since UB played 13 games on national television during its 2019-20 campaign, going 9-4.
