The Pack gets another winnable game.

NCAA Basketball: Penn State at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

The ACC announced the matchups for the 2017 Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Thursday morning. NC State will host Penn State this season after playing a road game at Illinois last year.

Penn State had struggles similar to the Pack’s last season, finishing 15-18 overall and 6-12 in Big Ten play, so this should be a pretty even matchup. The full list of Challenge matchups is below. Pittsburgh is the odd team out this year. (The ACC has 15 basketball schools while the B1G has 14, so one ACC team has to sit out the event each year.)

• Boston College at Nebraska

• Clemson at Ohio State

• No. 5 Duke at Indiana

• Florida State at Rutgers

• No. 20 Northwestern at Georgia Tech

• No. 10 Louisville at Purdue

• No. 12 Miami at Minnesota

• Michigan at No. 7 North Carolina

• Penn State at NC State

• No. 21 Notre Dame at No. 3 Michigan State

• Maryland at Syracuse

• Wisconsin at Virginia

• Iowa at Virginia Tech

• Illinois at Wake Forest
