The Gavitt Tipoff Games is an annual eight game series played between the Big Ten Conference and the Big East Conference to tip-off the college basketball season. The Gavitt Tipoff Games began in 2015 and will be played annually until 2022 as part of an eight-year deal. The Gavitt Tipoff Games will be played at the home sites at the participating schools, four of them will be hosted by Big Ten schools and four of them will be hosted by Big East schools. Each Big East team will participate a minimum of six times, while each Big Ten program will take part a minimum of four times.[1]

All games played at a Big East campus will be televised by FS1 and all games played on a Big Ten campus will be televised by ESPN or the Big Ten Network.[2]

The series is named in honor of the late Dave Gavitt, former athletic director at Providence College and the first commissioner of the Big East Conference.
