The 2019 Big Ten/ACC Challenge (or ACC/Big Ten Challenge, as it is called in even-numbered years) will feature 14 games spread across three days in the start of December. This will be only the second-ever matchup between the Huskers and Yellow Jackets, as the teams have not played since a 66-49 win by Georgia Tech on December 28, 1983. All 14 games are carried on the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU) and available on the ESPN App.

Louisville has won three of its five previous challenge events since joining the ACC, including an 82-78 home overtime victory over No. 9 Michigan State in last year's event.

The Nittany Lions opponent will be the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The ACC holds the advantage in the competition with a 12-5-3 record since its inception in 1999, and the conferences split the matchups with seven apiece in 2018. It was also released late Wednesday night that the Blue Devils will host Central Arkansas on November 12.

Overall the games were very competitive as nine of the fourteen games were decided by five points or less.

A Sweet 16 team from a year ago, the Seminoles finished last season 29-8, fourth in the ACC regular season standings.

With the ACC now comprised of 15 teams and the Big Ten holding strong at 14, that means there's always going to be one team left out. The nonconference matchup is part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Huskers will have a completely retooled roster under Hoiberg, who was hired in April after four-plus seasons with the Chicago Bulls.

MI at Louisville, meanwhile pits the surprise team of last season against a potential sleeper this year (although the expectations for the Cardinals are already going through the roof). Iowa's top-returning scorer, forward Luke Garza, averaged 13.1 points per game and 4.5 rebounds while Hughes 13.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

For as good as the Big Ten and ACC were at the top last season, putting four teams into the Elite Eight, there were also some really bad squads among the group. One of which, included an upset against Virginia Tech last season.
