Big Ten Daily (Nov. 15): Several exciting matchups in the latest Gavitt Tipoff Games series between the Big Ten and Big East

This is the eighth and final year of the Gavitt Tipoff Games, which will feature teams from the Big East and Big Ten. There are eight games this week as the Big Ten try to salvage a bit of pride from the event. They’ve won it twice in six tries, the Big East has won once, and there have been three 4-4 draws.

The streak began Monday night when DePaul defeated Minnesota and Penn State clinched their first Big Ten win with a win over Butler.

There are two more games on Tuesday, one each on Wednesday and Thursday, and a showpiece doubleheader on Friday night, which sees No. 12 Indiana take on Xavier in Cincinnati and Villanova travel to Michigan State.
