ACC/Big Ten Challenge, Night One
ESPNU will air both games.
Minnesota Golden Gophers (6-0)
Wake Forest Demon Deacons (5-1)
This season’s two ACC/B1G undercard games aren’t without intrigue. Minnesota puts its perfect record on the line, as the Golden Gophers hit the road for the first time for their lone true road game before conference play commences. They’ll face a Florida State squad that’s playing its second Big Ten opponent in a row—thanks to their Friday NIT consolation win over Illinois. The Seminoles should provide a sizable test for Minnesota, particularly since FSU’s offense looks to be a bit ahead of its usually formidable defense.
Later, Wake Forest, whose lone loss of the season came at the hands of the defending national champions, travels to Evanston to take on another set of Wildcats—Northwestern. (Who curiously won’t leave Chicagoland until their first league game.) With both these teams likely to be on the bubble at best, tonight’s winner will earn a slight advantage on that front.
Other Games Of Note
Kentucky Wildcats (6-0) vs. Arizona State Sun Devils (4-2) (Atlantis Showcase), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)
Last season, the Sun Devils traveled to Rupp Arena, where they dropped a 72-58 decision. Having seen them in person already this season, I’d expect a similar result in the Bahamas.
Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers (1-6) at Arkansas Razorbacks (3-1) (Golden Gopher Showcase), 8 p.m. (SEC Network+)
The Razorbacks are looking to wrap up their participation in this exempt round-robin with a 3-1 mark, while the NEC contenders want to avoid being blanked.
Butler Bulldogs (6-0) at Utah Utes (4-0), 9 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks National and Mountain)
After wrapping up the Las Vegas Invitational title, the Bulldogs stayed out West for this one, the first real test for a Ute squad that has four wins—two over non-Division I foes and a pair over likely non-factors. This contest, December 10th’s trip to Xavier, and the Diamond Head Classic are the only real non-league tests on Utah’s schedule for this season.
Boise State Broncos (3-2) at Oregon Ducks (4-2), 11 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks National and Oregon)
Last December, the Ducks lost by two in Boise, though that result ended up not meaning much in the big picture, thanks to the Broncos’ struggles. Oregon looks to be back on track thanks to its two closing wins in Maui.
