According to a series of tweets, and a report, from Jon Rothstein: we can take a look at the matchups for the 2018 ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
The Reported Schedule (unofficial): ACC teams in bold
Virginia at Maryland
Indiana at Duke (rematch from 2017)
North Carolina at Michigan (rematch from 2017)
Nebraska at Clemson
Rutgers at Miami
NC State at Wisconsin
Virginia Tech at Penn State
Purdue at Florida State
Michigan State at Louisville
Notre Dame at Illinois
Syracuse at Ohio State
Minnesota at Boston College
Georgia Tech at Northwestern (rematch from 2017)
Pitt at Iowa
(Note: Dates and times for the games have yet to be released.)
Assuming Rothstein’s report is accurate, the ACC will host six of the 14 games next season. In 2017, this event didn’t go so well for the Big Ten, which was swarmed by the ACC. (11-3 final record)
Overall, this is an event that the ACC has sort of dominated over the years. The 2018 challenge with be the 20th in the rivalry’s arc; the two conferences started the matchup back in 1999. The ACC has a 12-5-2 record in the event.
At the bottom
As is customary with the 15-to-14 team ratio, one ACC program will not participate. Next season, that will go to Wake Forest, per Rothstein.
Wake Forest is the lone ACC team that will not be a part of the 2018 ACC/Big Ten Challenge, per a source.
