Oakland adds a fifth Big Ten team to its schedule

According to a press release from Ohio State University, the Golden Grizzlies will visit Ohio State Dec. 23 at 8 p.m. The game will be carried on the Big Ten Network. Oakland already has games lined up with Michigan and Michigan State, Purdue and Illinois. All five matchups have been confirmed by the opposing schools, because Oakland has yet to release its official 2010-11 schedule.
Oakland has two wins over the Big Ten to date and now has five chances to pick up another.
OU's five Big Ten games this season:

Nov 21. @ Purdue, 7 p.m. (Chicago Invitational Tournament),
Dec. 8 @ Illinois, 8 p.m.,
Dec. 11 vs. Michigan State, TBA, The Palace of Auburn Hills
Dec. 18 @ Michigan, Noon,
Dec. 23 @ Ohio State, 8 p.m., Big Ten Network

Oakland also has Tennessee and West Virginia planned for its non-conference schedule, which once again, continues to pair the Golden Grizzlies with some of the nation's elite. Last season, they played No. 1 Kansas, N0. 5 Syracuse and No. 12 Michigan State as well as Memphis and Wisconsin.
