Big Ten / ACC Challenge Set

I have no idea if this challenge is officially named the Big Ten/ACC Challenge or the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, because I've seen it listed both ways numerous times. I guess it's all a matter of which conference you claim yourself to belong to. Well either way, the matchups for the 2011 challenge have been released, as the Big Ten looks to defend their title after winning it for just the first time ever last season. This year's matchups are as follows:

Monday, November 29
Virginia at Minnesota

Tuesday, November 30
North Carolina at Illinois
Ohio State at Florida State
Michigan at Clemson
Georgia Tech at Northwestern
Iowa at Wake Forest

Wednesday, December 1
Michigan State at Duke
Purdue at Virginia Tech
North Carolina State at Wisconsin
Indiana at Boston College
Maryland at Penn State

At first glance, it's very conceivable that the Big Ten could win this challenge for a second straight year. Michigan State vs. Duke is of course the centerpiece of this whole challenge, and it was the Badgers victory against the Dukies last year that helped the Big Ten take the crown. Wisconsin's opponent is a little less intimidating this season in N.C. State, a game which should be predicted to go Wisconsin's way especially with the game being in the Kohl Center.
