Previewing the 2022 ACC/Big Ten Challenge
The ACC looks to defeat the Big Ten in the Challenge for the first time since 2017
The 24th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge begins this week with teams from the Atlantic Coast and Big Ten conferences going head-to-head in 14 games taking place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
The ACC won the first ten editions of the Challenge, which began in 1999, but the ACC has won just two times since then, as the Big Ten has largely dominated the series since 2009. The Big Ten enters the 2022 season on a three-year winning streak in the Challenge, but the ACC still owns a 12-8-3 overall advantage in the all-time series. The ACC is looking to win the ACC/Big Ten Challenge for the first time since 2017.
