No. 4 Ohio State tips off against Marquette at 7 p.m. on the NBC Sports Network in the 2012 Carrier Classic. Docked off the coast of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., the game takes place onboard the USS Yorktown, where 8,000 active-duty servicemembers will be in attendance.

This year’s Carrier Classic is a double-header, with the Ohio State women’s basketball team taking on Notre Dame at 5 p.m. before the Buckeye men get a shot at Marquette.
