It is No. 1 vs. No. 2.
The college basketball season gets underway this Friday, kicking off an exciting few months on the hardwood.
Like every year, this season is chock full of premier non-conference matchups early on. None of those are bigger than Duke vs. Michigan State in the annual Champions Classic next Tuesday in Chicago.
Duke is ranked No. 1 while MSU is ranked No. 2, but ESPN’s BPI likes Sparty to win.
These two teams play almost every year, and every time it is an excellent matchup.
Duke and Michigan State will tip off at 7 p.m. ET next Tuesday on ESPN.
