Wisconsin to Face Wake Forest in Big Ten-ACC Challenge
MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin men?s basketball team will play at Wake Forest on Tuesday, Nov. 29, in the seventh annual Big Ten-ACC Challenge. The Badgers? game will begin at 6 p.m. CT and be televised nationally by ESPN.
?We?re looking forward to going on the road to face a quality opponent,? UW head coach Bo Ryan said. ?It should be a good challenge for our young team to play against a program such as Wake Forest?s in a hostile environment.?
This will be the third time UW and Wake Forest have squared off in the Challenge. The two teams met in Winston Salem, N.C., in the inaugural Big Ten?ACC Challenge in 1999 with the Demon Deacons winning, 67-48. In 2002 Wake Forest defeated UW, 90-80, at the Kohl Center. Those were the only meetings between the two teams in history.
Wisconsin owns a 2-4 all-time record in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. The Badgers defeated Maryland last year at the Kohl Center, snapping a three-game losing streak in the event. UW lost at Georgia Tech in 2001, at home to Wake Forest in 2002 and at Maryland in 2003. In 2000, Wisconsin defeated Maryland in overtime at the Bradley Center.

Wake Forest will have a down year. Wisconsin should be able to win that game. Nice to see Duke has a cakewalk in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge this year []

Rematch of the National Championship game as well, with Illinois vs. North Carolina. Too bad both rosters aren't the same as they used to be.

They return Gray, Strickland and Williams if I'm not mistaken. Williams was only a Junior and I don't think he declared for the draft. I could be wrong, but I don't think so. If that is the case, I'll change my mind on the Badgers winning. Strickland didn't get that much playing time last year, but should be a major contributor this year along with Gray. Williams will be on of the top big men in the country this year and should give Wisconsin's frontline trouble. It should be a good game though.

Yeah but they do that for ratings. I don't think they need to switch up the Challenge. I like it being the Big 10 and the ACC because generally they are two contrasting styles of play. And usually in the tournement these are the types of games that you see in the sweet sixteen and beyond.

The only thing that breaks up this stupid love-fest is college basketball. Duke stinks.

For one, it's not a stupid love-fest! Secondly, nothing will ever break up the love that Kaiters and I have for each other.

College basketball will. Rodey if you don't like Wisconsin your chances with Kaiters aren't very high in my opinion.

Actually Shavlik was a body that Duke could of used this year. Regardless of how much he did, he was another big body, and at times could make a nice post move here or there. Duke has problems with foul trouble at time and it's hurt them in the past. I'm not sad to see Randolph go, but I'd rather have him on the roster, bust or not, he was still a somewhat decent player.

It does take them out of contention. As much as it pains me to say this, the ACC will not be the best it's been in the past this year. The only team that's really a legitimate threat at winning the National Championship from the ACC is Duke. Other than them, it's a decent conference this year. Duke should walk away with the ACC easily.
