Last year the Big Ten FINALLY won the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. The match-ups for next winter, when the Midwestern conference goes for consecutive victories, are now out of the bag. The official word on the lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but what can I say? I know a guy who knows a guy.

Michigan State will travel to Duke and face the defending national champions in what could be the most hyped match-up of the season. The two Final Four teams from last month will no doubt he considered 1a. and 1b. when the season opens up next November.

Read more after the jump to see what else has been announced.

After the Duke-MSU main event, the biggest undercards will be:

North Carolina playing at Illinois in a battle of two potential top 15 teams. Also a re-match of the 2005 National title game- one of the darkest days of my life.

Purdue, another team that will be a favorite of many to reach the Final Four will visit Seth Greenberg’s Virginia Tech team, a pretty good squad themselves.

Ohio State, and their ridiculous class of incoming blue-chip recruits (and most likely the consensus third best team in the conference will head to Tallahassee to take on Florida State.

The N.C. State Wolfpack and their highly regarded class of incoming freshmen will play at a Wisconsin team that returns half their starters from a 24 win season, in Madison.
