Big Ten/ACC Challenge Central

The 19th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge will be played from Monday, Nov. 27 through Thursday, Nov. 30. The Challenge matches all 14 Big Ten teams against all but one ACC member.

 

ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 14 games of the event, matching top college basketball programs playing for conference supremacy and the Commissioner's Cup. All games will also be available to stream via the ESPN app.
