ACC/Big Ten Challenge Announced

And the mighty Gophers will travel to Tallahassee to face the Florida State Seminoles, Tuesday, November 27. Minnesota is 3-5 overall in Big Ten/ACC Challenge games, while Florida State is 5-3, the teams have played twice before and split, with the road team winning each game.

Florida State was 22-13 last season, just missing the NCAA tournament, and won two NIT games. The Seminoles lost Third Team All-American Al Thornton to graduation, but they still have at least three players who are better than any Gopher, and should win the game by 20.

The other matchups:

Wake Forest @ Iowa
Georgia Tech @ Indiana
Northwestern @ Virginia
Wisconsin @ Duke
Purdue @ Clemson
NC State @ Michigan St
Illinois @ Maryland
BC @ Michigan
North Carolina @ Ohio St
Va Tech @ Penn State

I predict the Big 10 to go 5-7 and lose the Commissioner's Cup for the ninth straight year.
