Rothstein reported the rest of the 2018 ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchups as well. Boston College (vs. Minnesota), Clemson (vs. Nebraska), Duke (vs. Indiana), Florida State (vs. Purdue), Louisville (vs. Michigan State), Miami (vs. Rutgers), and Notre Dame (vs. Illinois) have home games. Meanwhile, Georgia Tech (vs. Northwestern), North Carolina (vs. Michigan), NC State (vs. Wisconsin), Pitt (vs. Iowa), Syracuse (vs. Ohio State), and Virginia Tech (vs. Penn State) join UVA in hitting the road.
An official announcement is expected soon according to Rothstein.
Maryland finished the 2017/2018 season with a 19-13 record and an 8th-place finish in the Big 10. The Terrapins did not receive a postseason invite to either the NCAA or the NIT tournaments. Furthermore, head coach Mark Turgeon just learned that Kevin Huerter, the team’s second-leading scorer last season, will forego the final two years of his college career and remain in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Twenty-seven of Virginia’s 2018-19 games have been revealed, either officially or through sources. Home games include Marshall (per Rothstein), George Washington (per Rothstein), William & Mary (per Rothstein), VCU, Duke, Louisville, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest. The Hoos hit the road to face Maryland, South Carolina, Duke, Louisville, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, and Syracuse. Virginia announced it will be a participant in the 2018 Battle For Atlantis, where the Cavaliers will play three games.
