Big Ten Looking To Repeat Against ACC In Annual Challenge

Tom Izzo Final Four

The ACC-Big Ten Challenge has not been much of a challenge at all as the Atlantic Coast Conference has won ten of the eleven years since its inception in 1999.  The only time the Big Ten conquered this match-up was last season; as the Midwest’s premiere conference won six of the eleven games including Wisconsin’s home upset of then sixth ranked Duke.

This week, the Big Ten should be the favorite.  If they are able to once again take down the ACC, in the words of Cleveland Indians manager Lou Brown in Major League, “that’s called a winning streak.”  Here is a breakdown and predictions for the 2010 ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
