This week two of the better basketball conferences in the nation will meet in the Big 10/ACC Challenge. The Big Ten has won the last 3 challenges as the conference has slowly but surely become the elite group across the nation. Cody Zeller This year’s challenge features some solid matchups. Here they are with who I think wins each game: Tuesday: Minnesota @ Florida State – FSU wins #9 North Carolina @ #1 Indiana – IU wins #16 North Carolina State @ #4 Michigan – Michigan wins Maryland @ Northwestern – Northwestern wins Iowa @ Virginia Tech – Va Tech wins Nebraska @ Wake Forest – Wake wins Wednesday: Purdue @ Clemson – Purdue wins #3 Ohio State @ #5 Duke – OSU wins Georgia Tech @ Illinois – Ga Tech wins #15 Michigan State @ Miami – MSU wins Boston College @ Penn State – BC wins Virginia @ Wisconsin – Wiscy wins The UNC v. Indiana, NC State v. Michigan, and OSU v. Duke matchups are some truly spectacular pairings. With the Big Ten boasting 3 teams in the nation’s top 4, the ACC is going to be looking to put itself back in the conversation as the best conference in college hoops. I have the Big Ten winning 7 of the 12 matchups to snag their 4th straight challenge victory.
