COLLEGE PARK, Md. –
The Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday released the network and time
assignments for the 14th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge, and Maryland is
set to play at Northwestern at 9:15 p.m. ET on Nov. 27 on ESPN2.
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.
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.
