Penn State seeks its 10th Big Ten wrestling title since 2007 when the program hosts the Big Ten Wrestling Championships this weekend.

Big Ten Network plans nearly 10 hours of expanded coverage from the two-day tournament at the Bryce Jordan Center. Three of the four sessions will be broadcast on Big Ten Network, with BTN+ live-streaming from every mat through the entire tournament. The Saturday broadcast marks a first for the Big Ten championships.

In addition, Bo Nickal, Penn State's three-time Big Ten and NCAA champion, will join the Big Ten Network broadcast team.

Iowa and Penn State shared the regular-season Big Ten dual-meet title and are ranked first and second nationally, according to InterMat Wrestling, entering the conference championships. Since their dual meet was canceled, Penn State and Iowa will compete for the first time this season at the Big Ten tournament.

Here's the weekend broadcast schedule. All times are EST:

Saturday
