The Big Ten and the ACC will go head to head this November for the Commissioner’s Cup.

Earlier today, the conferences announced each matchup in a challenge that’s headlined by 13 squads that participated in the 2022 NCAA Tournament. Going by ESPN’s Way-Too-Early Top 25, there are six ranked teams currently part of the challenge.

The games will take place during the final week of November, with all games available on the ESPN family of networks.

The Big Ten is coming off of an 8-6 win in the 2021 challenge, and the Badgers were able to defeat Georgia Tech on the road to help the conference last season.
