How to watch Big Ten volleyball media days: Preview, schedule, TV, live streaming

There’s a first for everything.

Last volleyball season, Wisconsin and Nebraska faced off in a national championship match that drew a record-setting 1.2 million viewers, putting on display one of the most exciting five-set thrillers the sport has ever seen. This week, the national champion Badgers and their Husker companions will join the rest of the conference in Chicago for the Big Ten’s inaugural volleyball media days. In addition to being a first for the conference, Monday and Tuesday mark the first dedicated media days for any volleyball conference in the NCAA.

In similar fashion to football and basketball, all 14 coaches will be in attendance with two student-athletes — seven will hold press conferences on Monday afternoon and seven on Tuesday morning. Additionally, each evening will feature a recap of the day’s key moments. Northwestern head coach Shane Davis, senior outside-hitter Temi Thomas-Ailara and graduate libero Megan Miller are slated for day one of the event which will be broadcast on Big Ten Network and the Fox Sports App.
