Facebook is steadily building out content to get viewers to watch things on its site. Back in May, the company streamed several MLB games, and now it’s following up on that with live streams of college basketball, via Engadget.

To do that, Facebook is partnering with Stadium, a sports live-streaming site, in order to stream 47 college basketball games through Facebook Watch. The games will be available through Stadium’s page on Facebook, starting with Belmont vs. Middle Tennessee at 7:30PM ET tonight.

According to Engadget, the games shown on Facebook will include Dayton, Saint Mary's, Middle Tennessee State, Nevada, Florida Gulf Coast, and Wake Forest, along with other teams from the West Coast Conference, Atlantic 10, Conference USA, and Mountain West. So maybe don’t expect to see top-tier schools like Ohio State or Duke just yet.
