With the Thanksgiving Week tournaments are all over, it's time to move into another preseason tradition—the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. It opens tonight with two undercard matchups.

Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 7 p.m. (ESPNU)

After finishing third in Maui, the Demon Deacons are riding high. Tonight, they head to Piscataway to take on a 3-3 Scarlet Knights team that went 0-2 in the Men Who Speak Up Main Event finals in Vegas, falling to both Creighton and Clemson.

Clemson Tigers at Minnesota Golden Gophers, 9 p.m. (ESPN2)

The Tigers split their two games in Vegas, as their win over Rutgers followed a semifinal loss to UMass, Clemson's only defeat of the year so far. While the Gophers are 4-2, they lost to both Temple and Texas Tech in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off and defeated the Summit's Omaha Mavericks by only three on Friday.

Other Intriguing Entrees

Illinois State Redbirds at No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats, 7 p.m. (ESPN2)

At 3-4 and coming off an 0-2 trip to the Cancun Challenge (and Friday win over non-Division I Quincy), the Redbirds are a bit of a disappointment two weeks into the season. That would change if they pull off an unlikely upset against the powerful Wildcats.

Western Carolina Catamounts at South Carolina Gamecocks, 7 p.m. (SEC Network)

The Gamecocks will look to pick up their seventh consecutive win against a Catamount team that's only 1-3 against D1 competition, as they fell at the College of Charleston by one on Friday.

Fresno State Bulldogs at Oregon Ducks, 8 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks National and Oregon)

One of these 5-0 squads will pick up their first loss this evening. Don't expect it to be the Ducks, who have faced far stiffer competition than the Bulldogs so far, even if this will be their sixth straight at Matthew Knight Arena.
