I was going to write something more in depth about the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and then I saw what Ken Pomeroy and John Gasaway had posted already and decided it wasn't worth my time to essentially duplicate their work.
About that challenge thing
Suffice it to say: The Big Ten is supposed to win. Minnesota needs to win tonight over Virginia for that to happen. And even though the Big Ten is the favorite, 6-5 is the most likely outcome. Thank the Big Ten being on the road for six of the games for that one.
Much more on the games readers of this blog probably care about (Northwestern vs. Georgia Tech and Illinois vs. North Carolina) is coming up later.
