ACC/Big Ten Challenge Schedule Announced

The University of North Carolina will play host to Ohio State University in the eighth annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Tar Heels and Buckeyes will meet at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29, at the Smith Center.

Ohio State is Carolina's fourth different opponent in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. UNC played Michigan State in 1999 and 2000, Indiana in 2001 and 2004 and Illinois in 2002, 2003 and 2005. Carolina had won two straight games in the Challenge prior to a 68-64 home loss to the Illini last November.

The ACC is 7-0 in the seven previous Challenges against the Big Ten.

The Tar Heels have won seven of nine meetings against Ohio State. The schools have not played since an 81-68 UNC victory in Chapel Hill on December 18, 1993.
