2011 ACC/Big 10 Challenge: Maryland To Play Illinois At Home

The 2011 ACC/Big 10 Challenge matchups have been set, and Maryland will be playing at home against Illinois on November 29 in a rematch of a game the two teams played at the beginning of last season. It's Maryland's first home game at the ACC/Big 10 Challenge in three years, and it also comes against a legitimate opponent that reached the final 32 in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

Last season, the Terps defeated Penn State on the road, though the Nittany Lions did manage to rally and make the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Two seasons ago, the Terps topped a reeling Indiana team in Bloomington.

Illinois will suffer some heavy graduation losses, but Bruce Weber's team is always well-prepared and should be a challenge. Illinois defeated Maryland in the third-place game of the preseason Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic last year.

Here are all the matchups:

Tuesday, Nov. 29 
Miami Hurricanes at Purdue Boilermakers
Northwestern Wildcats at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Illinois Fighting Illini at Maryland Terrapins
Michigan Wolverines at Virginia Cavaliers
Clemson Tigers at Iowa Hawkeyes
Duke Blue Devils at Ohio St. Buckeyes

Wednesday, Nov. 30 
Indiana Hoosiers at N.C. State Wolfpack 
Penn St. Nittany Lions at Boston College Eagles
Florida St. Seminoles at Michigan St. Spartans 
Virginia Tech Hokies at Minnesota Golden Gophers
Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Nebraska Cornhuskers
Wisconsin Badgers at North Carolina Tar Heels
