The second half of the 2017 Big Ten softball season begins this week with five conference schools ranked or receiving votes in the latest national polls, including four in the Top 25. Once again this week, BTN and BTN Plus will be televising numerous Big Ten softball games, with all BTN and BTN Plus games this season also available to view on the BTN2Go platform, either online (btn2go.com) or through the BTN2Go app. As a reminder — all schedules are subject to change due to weather or other factors, so make sure to check each school's official athletics web site and/or social media channels for updated information.
