ESPN announced the date, time and channel that all of the games featured in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.
Here are the highlights that you need to know about:
Kentucky squares off with Kansas on Jan. 28th at 6:00 p.m. on Rupp Arena, which is a matchup between two of the preseason top three teams in the country.
Duke’s showdown with Michigan State in Cameron Indoor Stadium will be on Nov. 29th — a Tuesday — in a 9:30 p.m. tip. That will, of course, be on ESPN.
North Carolina’s Sweet 16 rematch with Indiana in Bloomington will be at 9:00 p.m. on the following night, Nov. 30th.
Beyond that, the schedule isn’t all that moving. Syracuse at Wisconsin on Nov. 29th, Purdue at Louisville on the 30th, Texas A&M at West Virginia on Jan. 28th. Those are all nice matchups. But it’s those first three that are going to be must-see TV.
Anyway, here is the full schedule.
