BLOOMINGTON – Indiana will go on the road to take on Wake Forest in the 2008 ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday.
The Hoosiers and Demon Deacons will square off on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on the last day of the three-day event. Times and television haven't been announced for the games yet.
