Another piece of the Colorado Buffaloes' 2016-17 men's basketball schedule has fallen into place.

On Wednesday, CU announced the Dec. 10 date at Brigham Young will tip off at 8 p.m. MST and will air on ESPN2. That means the Buffs will gain national exposure in at least two of their 13 nonconference game, as the Nov. 21 game against Notre Dame at the Legends Classic in New York also will air on ESPN2. The start times and television information for the remainder of the nonconference is still to be determined, but the Buffs' second game at the Legends Classic against either Texas or Northwestern likely will be picked up by the ESPN Networks as well.

CU opens the 2016-17 slate at home on Nov. 11 against Sacramento State.
