According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Blue Devils will travel to Madison for a road game against the Wisconsin Badgers during next year’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Duke will play Wisconsin Wednesday Dec. 2 with the time yet to be determined. This would be the Blue Devils’ second meeting with the Badgers in the Challenge. They last played Nov. 27, 2007 when Duke downed Wisconsin 82-58 in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Historically, Duke boasts a perfect 10-0 record in ACC/Big Ten Challenge games. The Blue Devils have cruised through Challenge road games at Big Ten arenas, winning those three games (at Purdue in 2008, at Indiana in 2005 and at Michigan State in 2003) by an average of over 15 points.
Update: ESPN has issued a press release with the dates for each ACC/Big Ten game, and the Duke-Wisconsin game will be played Wednesday, December 2. Duke’s game will likely be the marquee ACC/Big Ten game on Wednesday, with the national title game rematch of UNC-Michigan State scheduled for Tuesday.
