Michigan to play at North Carolina in Big Ten-ACC Challenge

Michigan will travel to North Carolina for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge this year.

Michigan will travel to North Carolina for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge this year.

North Carolina went 33-7 last year, won the ACC regular season title and beat Gonzaga to win the National Championship. The Tar Heels lost several key contributors from last year’s roster — Justin Jackson, Isaiah Hicks, Kennedry Meeks, Nate Britt and Tony Bradley — but return their starting guards, seniors Joel Berry and Theo Pinson. North Carolina also added Pittsburgh graduate transfer Cam Johnson and has a top-20 recruiting class led by four-stars Jalek Felton and Garrison Brooks.

Most preseason prognostications have the defending champs pegged as a top-15 team heading into 2017-18.

The Wolverines will also play in the Maui Invitational, host UCLA, and play games at Texas and Detroit (Little Caesars Arena). Find a full rundown of future scheduled dates on our future schedules page.
