The matchups for the 2020 ACC/Big Ten Challenge were released Friday morning as we inch ever so slowly closer to the return of college basketball. The Virginia Cavaliers are set to host the Michigan State Spartans, the third time the two teams will have met in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, and the sixth overall.

Virginia has never beaten Michigan State in the five previous attempts, which includes the 2014 NCAA Tournament and the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

Overall, the Hoos hold a 13-7 record in the Challenge, having lost to Purdue last year in an epic Elite Eight rematch of The Play to break a five-game Challenge winning streak.

Wake Forest is the only ACC team not playing this year, since the Big Ten only has 14 teams.

Below is the full slate of matchups. All the games will be televised on some combination of ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU. The exact tipoff times will be announced later.
