Over the last few minutes, the various games in this year’s edition of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge have been rolling out. Now, we know the full set of match-ups coming this fall.
Because the ACC has 15 programs to 14 for the Big Ten, Virginia Tech is sitting this year’s challenge out. The Hokies will likely be a rebuilding team this year, losing a number of top players as well as Buzz Williams to Texas A&M.
That leaves 14 games between the two conferences, including some really prominent games. The highlights: Michigan at Louisville, Virginia at Purdue, Duke at Michigan State, and Ohio State and North Carolina.
The ACC/Big Ten Challenge runs from December 2-4. Here is the full set of games.
