ACC/Big Ten Challenge

The ACC is dominating yet another ACC/Big Ten Challenge. After two days of action, Tobacco Road leads the Midwest 5-1 with 5 games to be played today.

Indiana's win over Georgia Tech was the only victory for the Big Ten. The Yellow Jackets fell just short of winning a game that would have boosted Notre Dame's nonconference SOS. Then again, the Irish lost so there was little to gain but pride for ND in yesterday's game.

Barring a sweep of today's matchups, the Big Ten will fall for the 9th straight year that the series has been contested. Time to bring back the ACC/Big East Challenge. Just for fun, we'll showcase a few matchups here:
  • #7 Duke vs. #10 Louisville
  • #2 North Carolina vs. #5 Georgetown
  • #18 Clemson vs. #11 Pittsburgh
  • Virginia vs. #14 Marquette
  • NC State vs. #21 Villanova

Just a taste. Would certainly be more competitive than the current lineup. Not to mention teams like Syracuse and Connecticut getting a chance against the most publicized conference in the land. Just an idea...
