Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One…

… but Jeff Goodman at Fox Sports.com is reporting UNC will play at Illinois in this year’s ACC/Big 10 Challenge. I say “stop me if you’ve heard this one” because in the 12 years of the event, Carolina has only played four teams: Michigan State (four times), Ohio State (twice), Indiana (twice), and Illinois.

ACC 8 Big Ten 3
