    That’s a good matchup and a fun team to play

    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

    Michigan has played NC State twice and VT once since they last played UVA way back in November of 2011. Of those schools I’d definitely say it would be the Cavaliers. If not them … maybe Syracuse?

    I’m really looking forward to a Zavier Simpson vs. Payton Pritchard matchup. Both play very similarly and will have bigger roles offensively next year. As far as ACC/Big Ten Challenge, my guess would be Virginia, which I wouldn’t be upset with.
