Maryland to host Virginia in ACC-Big Ten Challenge

The Maryland men's basketball team will host Virginia in next season's ACC-Big Ten Challenge, the Terps' first since switching conferences.

After playing the last two years of the event on the road as a lame-duck ACC team, Maryland gets a home date against the longtime rival Cavaliers on Dec. 3.


Maryland beat then-No. 5 Virginia in overtime, 75-69, in its final ACC regular season game at Comcast Center on March 9.

The addition of the reigning ACC regular season and tournament champions strengthens an already formidable non-conference schedule for the Terps, who could face Iowa State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City in late November and will play Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York on Dec. 8.


Maryland lost at No. 5 Ohio State in last year's ACC-Big Ten Challenge and won on the road at Northwestern in 2012.

Here's the full schedule for the 2014 Challenge :

Monday, Dec. 1

Nebraska at Florida State
Rutgers at Clemson

Tuesday, Dec. 2

Illinois at Miami
Minnesota at Wake Forest
NC State at Purdue
Ohio State at Louisville
Pittsburgh at Indiana
Syracuse at Michigan

Wednesday, Dec. 3

Georgia Tech at Northwestern
Iowa at North Carolina
Michigan State at Notre Dame
Virginia at Maryland
