Can the Big Ten finally claim its first victory in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge? Doesn't look like it. Here are quick breakdowns of the 11 games in this season's event:
Wednesday, Nov. 29
Michigan State at Boston College (ESPN, 7 ET)
Two teams that have been exactly the opposite of what we expected: BC has been a big-time dud while Sparty and the boys have been studs. Played in Chestnut Hill, this should be a physical game. BC is better and at home. Take the Eagles.
Virginia at Purdue (ESPN2, 7:30 ET)
Pretty good matchup of teams recovering their hoops' image. Virginia has the backcourt; Purdue has the frontcourt and the home-court advantage. Still, take the Cavaliers.
