ACC/Big Ten (actually 11) Challenge 2010

Today, the ACC and Big Ten Conferences announced the pairings and dates for the 4th annual inter-conference challenge. (The ACC holds a 3-0 advantage.)

11 of the 12 ACC teams will see action against the Big Ten. Only the University of Miami gets a bye this year.

All of the games will take place on two consecutive nights, starting Wednesday, December 1st, with Maryland playing on the road at Purdue on Thursday, December 2nd.

Entering the 2010 Challenge, Maryland is one of only 5 teams among the 23 from the two conferences currently undefeated in the three previous years of the competition. (And for the record, neither Duke nor the Heels are in that select company.)

This year's game -- though on the road -- will be a homecoming of sorts: the Terps will face off against a former teammate, Drey Mingo, who transferred to the Boilermakers a year ago and is expected to see action for her new team this season.

Go Terps . . . Beat the Boilermakers!
