There are three marquee matchups on this year's schedule. One is a home game against Michigan on December 10th, one is an away game at Kentucky, which completes the home-and-home series, on December 3rd, and the final one is December 17th at the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas against Ohio State.

The Bruins will also participate this year in the Wooden Legacy on November 24, 25 and 27.

The team will open the schedule against Pacific on November 11. The Bruins game against CSUN on November 13th is part of the Wooden Legacy.
