North Carolina and Ohio State, programs with two of the better incoming freshman classes, will meet in one of the feature pairings of the eighth annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
Duke, the only school to be 7-0 in the challenge, will face Indiana for the second straight season. The Blue Devils won last year's game 75-67 as the ACC won the matchup of two of the country's top conferences for the seventh straight season.
The 11 games, announced Tuesday by the two conferences, will be played on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27-29) and will broadcast on ESPN's family of networks.
Michigan is at North Carolina State on Nov. 27. The games on Nov. 28 are: Maryland at Illinois; Florida State at Wisconsin; Penn State at Georgia Tech; Indiana at Duke; and Miami at Northwestern.
In addition to Ohio State at North Carolina on Nov. 29, Michigan State is at Boston College; Virginia is at Purdue; Iowa is at Virginia Tech; and Clemson is at Minnesota.
Seven-foot Greg Oden and his Lawrence North (Ind.) H.S. teammate Michael Conley headline Ohio State's freshman class. North Carolina has freshman Tyler Hansbrough back from last season's team that finished 10th in the final poll, and he will be joined by an incoming led by point guard Tywon Lawson of Oak Hill (Va.) Academy.
