Sixth Annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge Match-Ups

The schedule for the sixth annual Big Ten/ACC Basketball Challenge was released today.


The sixth annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge match-ups have been determined with the event once again featuring top college basketball programs playing for conference supremacy and the Commissioner's Cup. ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise the nine-game Challenge Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 29 through December 1, from nine different college campuses. It will mark the third consecutive year that every game will be televised nationally in a three-day schedule (ESPN Regional Television televised one game each of the first three years).

Since 2000, these two conferences have combined to make 10 Final Four appearances, capturing three of the last five NCAA Championships. In addition, the Big Ten and ACC rank either first or second in all-time NCAA Tournament bids, victories and Final Four appearances.
