The No. 24 Wisconsin Badgers (9-2) officially has a new opponent for this Thursday, December 23rd. The Badgers will host the George Mason Patriots (7-5) at the Kohl Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:00 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on the Big Ten Network (BTN).
Wisconsin had been seeking a new opponent after being notified that previously scheduled Morgan State wouldn’t be making the trip to Madison due to COVID-19 complications within its program.
This is the first ever meeting between the Badgers and the Patriots.
Getting this game scheduled is an upgrade in its non-conference schedule. George Mason already has registered true road wins over Maryland and Georgia this season.
