The Second Annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge kicked off today with the unranked Georgia Tech Yellowjackets knocking off the #21 ranked Michigan State Spartans, 70-57. ACC 1, Big Ten 0.

Right now, as we're writing, we're also watching the UNC Heels vs the Ohio State Buckeyes (UNC leads 41-37 at the half) on the Big Ten Network.

We LOVE the Big Ten Network! Why? Because last season our cable provider didn't carry it, and now they do. And that means that tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:30 PM, if we tune in (and we will) to the BTN, we'll get to see Maryland play at Purdue . . . in HD! Is this a great network, or what? And when that game concludes, the Cavs face the Illini in the second half of tomorrow's BTN double-header. Plus, on Friday at 6:30 PM, BTN is broadcasting the Wolfpack vs Michigan. Didn't we say this was great?

[If, unfortunately, you don't get BTN, you can still listen to the Terps' game and follow it on Gametracker. The links are here.]

Results Update: The Heels beat the Buckeyes, 72-63 and Florida State beat Penn State, 73-60. ACC 3, Big Ten 0.

News Update: The front page of Thursday's Washington Post Sports Section has an article by Camille Powell about Maryland's Road Warriors (to be). And, has a second (don't miss!) installment of Marissa's blog . . . all about the Terps' trip to Cancun. (Note to Riss: would have "gone," not "went".)

I love the Big Ten Network Too! This is my first season having it and when I saw the MD, Purdue game was on, as well as all of the other games this season, I was an extremely happy Terp fan. Can't wait for the game tomorrow night. How will I ever concentrate on work tomorrow...

How do we know if we have the Big Ten Network? I have the Comcast Sports Package purportedly so I can get the "extra" channels, like the Tennis Channel, etc.

Anyway, enough of the cable guide questions....go Terps (and go ACC!)!

I would call your provider (or search your program guide). I have the same package but the channels included depend on where you live. Good luck and Go Terps!
