Getting to Know "U"


Tomorrow night at 8 PM ET, Maryland will help kick off the 6th annual Future Big Ten/Big Ten ACC/Big Ten Challenge, playing at the "U" of Nebraska. This is one of eight games being contested on the first of two nights of competition to determine which Conference will hold the bragging rights for the next 12 months. 

Maryland's game against the #21-ranked Cornhuskers will provide a nice preview of life-in-the-B1G for both the Terp team and their fans.  The team will have the chance to get familiar with traveling out to Lincoln for future B1G games, and the fans will have the chance to get familiar with staying home, getting comfy on their couches, and watching the game on the Big Ten Network (BTN). Which is exactly what the BCs will be doing tomorrow night.

For those keeping score, the ACC won the first four editions of the Challenge, but last year's Challenge resulted in a tie.  So while the ACC didn't win last year, they didn't lose either.  Two teams have done even better than that -- Maryland and Georgia Tech enter this year's Challenge as the only teams in either Conference to have won all of their Challenge games.  So there's a lot on the line, not just for the conferences, but for the Terps and the Yellow Jackets this year.

The full schedule of Challenge games, including TV and webcast information, can be found here.

Go Terps! Beat the Huskers! Go ACC (and Future Big Ten)! Beat the B1G!

Well this sucks - No BTN on Dish Network, no GameTracker and no free radio broadcast. Just umdwbb tweets. Is the game on a Comcast channel in DMV area? If so, I will go to family house 2 watch.
