Michigan to play North Carolina in Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Michigan will participate in the ACC/Big Ten challenge and will face off against the defending national championship.

For the 17th time in program history, Michigan will participate in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

This year, the Wolverines will have its work cut out for them as it heads to Chapel Hill to take on the defending national champion North Carolina.

The Big Ten/ACC Challenge is a series that started in 1999 that pits the two conferences together in a 14-game event in late November. The winner of the series earns the Commissioner's Cup which the ACC has won 11 times. The ACC also reclaimed the title last season after the Big Ten won seven-straight challenges.

The Wolverines have faced the Tarheels five times in program history, all on neutral sites, and holds a 2-3 record. The last time the two programs faced off against one another was during the 1992 national title game, which UNC won 77-71 in New Orleans.

The Big Ten/ACC challenge games will be televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. Dates and times are planned to be released at a later date.

The full challenge matchups are below:
