Virginia is looking to start things off right for the ACC in this year’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Hoos are 8-2 in the last ten games of the Challenge, and are 13-7 since the series started. Virginia did not play in the Challenge last year due to Covid-19 challenges within UVA’s program.
Against Iowa, Virginia is 1-2 overall, though this is the first time the two teams have met in the Challenge. The last time these two teams met was in 2016, with UVA winning 74-41 at the Emerald Coast Classic. Prior to that, Virginia lost in the 2013 NIT and in the first round of the 1997 NCAA Tournament.
Here’s the BIG PREVIEW for tonight’s matchup. I wouldn’t call this a “tune-up” game, but ACC play starts Friday against Pitt.
