With the passionate wrestling community continuing to grow, more and more fans are turning to BTN as their home for Big Ten wrestling. Last year, BTN’s wrestling coverage saw a double-digit increase in ratings.
“Wrestling attracts an extremely engaged and enthusiastic fan base,” said BTN President Mark Silverman. “With the strength of the Big Ten in the sport, the audience will only continue to grow.”
The final session of the 2014 Big Ten Wrestling Championships will be televised live at 2 PM ET on Sunday, March 9.
