Maryland, Penn State to meet in ACC/Big Ten Challenge
Maryland will travel to Penn State on Dec. 1 in the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The game will be televised on one of the ESPN networks at a time to be announced at a later date.
The Terrapins tied for the ACC regular season championship last season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. The Nittany Lions finished a disappointing 11-20 after losing in the first round of the Big Ten tournament.
Last season, Penn State became the first Big Ten team to win its ACC/Big Ten Challenge game in three consecutive years after its 69-66 victory at Virginia. The Nittany Lions are 4-5 all-time in ACC/Big Ten Challenge games. Maryland has won five straight ACC/Big Ten Challenge games, the latest being last season's 80-68 victory at Indiana.
The Terrapins and Nittany Lions haven't played since 1990, when Penn State scored an 80-78 win in the National Invitation Tournament. Maryland leads the all-time series, 8-7.
