Duke Coming to the Kohl Center

As a Wisconsin Badgers basketball fan, I've grown quite accustomed to watching them take on a team like either N.C. State or Virginia Tech when it comes to the Big Ten / ACC Challenge. Occasionally, however, one of the ACC powerhouses will get sprinkled in, and such is the case this year. Two years after the Badgers traveled to Duke and got hammered, the Dukies are returning the favor, coming to the Kohl Center on December 2nd. 

The Badgers have faired decently in the Big Ten / ACC Challenge, posting a 4-6 record. They have only played at home though three times, and are 2-1 when they do. If they are going to keep that winning record in tact, it's going to be tough, as the Blue Devils are 10-0 all time in the challenges between the conference. 

The rest of the schedule, which includes a rematch of the NCAA Championship, is as follows:

Monday, Nov. 30 

Penn State at Virginia

Tuesday, Dec. 1 

Maryland at Indiana
Michigan State at North Carolina
Northwestern at N.C. State
Virginia Tech at Iowa
Wake Forest at Purdue

Wednesday, Dec. 2 

Duke at Wisconsin
Boston College at Michigan
Florida State at Ohio State
Illinois at Clemson
Minnesota at Miami

Is this the year the Big Ten finally comes out on top for the Commissioner's Cup? Probably not, but I'm already looking forward to it.
