ESPN has finalized the network and time assignments for the 14th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Challenge features top college basketball programs playing for conference supremacy and the Commissioner’s Cup on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU. North Carolina will play at Indiana at 9:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday Nov. 27 on ESPN.
ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 12 Challenge games over a two-day period (November 27-28).
All 12 games will also be available via WatchESPN, which delivers live access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 on PCs, smartphones and tablets to fans who receive ESPN’s linear networks as part of their video subscription from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks or Verizon FiOS TV.
The ACC won the first 10 Challenges, while the Big Ten has captured the Commissioners Cup for past three events, including an 8-4 win advantage last year. In the event of a 6-6 tie, the Commissioners Cup will remain with the conference that won the previous year.
