ESPN announced the pairings for the 2012 ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Monday afternoon. NC State will hit the road to play the Michigan Wolverines on Tuesday, Nov. 27. But we already knew that. The matchups:

Date Game
Tue, Nov 27 No. 13 North Carolina at No. 1 Indiana
No. 6 NC State at No. 5 Michigan
No. 25 Minnesota at Florida State
Maryland at Northwestern
Iowa at Virginia Tech
Nebraska at Wake Forest
Wed, Nov 28 No. 8 Ohio State at No. 15 Duke
Virginia at No. 22 Wisconsin
No. 9 Michigan State at Miami
Purdue at Clemson
Georgia Tech at Illinois
Boston College at Penn State


As usual, Duke and UNC are involved in what should be a couple of excellent games, and I think that Michigan State/Miami game has the potential to be very good as well. Virginia and Wisconsin have been matched up because ESPN either wants to kill viewers or test this theory they have about stopping time.
