The 13th annual Big Ten-ACC Challenge tips off on Tuesday night with six games, starting with Michigan at Virginia (7 p.m. ET) and ending with No. 2 Duke at No. 3 Ohio State at 9:30 ET in what could be the game of the season thus far.
After losing the first 10 Challenges, the Big Ten has put together back-to-back victories, winning in 2009 and 2010 by one game. The Big Ten appears to have the advantage on paper again this year, with Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan and Michigan State all ranked in the AP top 30. The ACC remains top heavy this season with Duke and UNC both in the top five nationally. Beyond the Blue Devils and Tar Heels, the conference seems mediocre so far, with Florida State being the only other team close to cracking the top 25.
