The games will take place the first Tuesday through Friday of the regular season and will be played at home sites, four from each conference. The original series, announced Monday, is for eight years.
The matchups for the inaugural Gavitt Tipoff Games will be announced after next season.
Gavitt, a Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer, founded the Big East.
Each of the 10 Big East teams will participate a minimum of six times over the eight years, while the Big Ten schools will participate a minimum of four times with the conference expanding to 14 members next season.
The Big Ten says it will continue its challenge series with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
