    I would expect Big Ten-ACC Challenge matchups in the next week or so as well.

    Torvik projects Creighton to have No. 12 offense and No. 39 defense next year. Should be a very talented team.

    Really missed a great Markus Howard vs Zavier Simpson matchup

    Any guesses on Big Ten-ACC game?

    At first glance, the natural matchups that are due to be home teams this year are Virginia, NC State and Virginia Tech. Could be some others obviously too.
