ACC/Big Ten Challenge Midway Recap 
Posted on December 3, 2008 at 12:19 AM.
Alright Operation Sports, time to talk some College Basketball and what time is the best time to do it.......The ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Wisconsin(74) Vs. Virginia Tech(72)
I guess i'll just start with the first game of the week which was literally a offensive showdown. I must say that I was suprised by the Hokies shooting from behind the arc.With good shooting from Vasallo he was the one that kept this game tight to the very end BUT of course they get the rug pulled out from under them once again as Wisconsin hands them another robbed defeat.
Ohio State(73) Vs. Miami (FL)(68)

Not too much to say about this one other than a little swiping match in the middle of the game. Diebler led the team in points with 20 as Ohio State makes a nice little comeback against a very deep Miami ball club.
Iowa(55) Vs. Boston College(57)
A bit of a low scoring game and a dark horse game at that as not many people stayed tuned to watch this one except maybe your fans of the Hawkeyes or Eagles. Not much to say about this one, other than a nice little win for BC against a struggling Hawkeye team.
Clemson(76) Vs. Illinois(74)

I must say that this was the most intruiging of all the games in my book. Once again as we have another 2-point victory the Tigers who are undefeated makes a second half comeback to beat Davis with his 28 points and the Illini.

With Duke-Purdue and Virginia-Minnesota playing i'll go ahead and give you predictions to the rest of the games seeming that I won't have enough time to give you my analyst tomorrow.

Duke Vs. Purdue
With this game well in control, i'm gonna have to go with the Dukies winning this one in a nice non-conference victory.

Virginia Vs. Minnesota

I'm gonna go with Tubby and his Golden Gophers winning this one in a not so finesse win (How in the world do you spell that word?) but if your getting tired of Duke beating Purdue then flip on over to ESPN2 for a more balanced matchup.

Indiana Vs. Wake Forset

This will probably be the most non competitive matchup out of the whole challenge. Sorry Hoosier fans (If there's any out there) but i'm going with the more talented Wake Forest team led by Teague.
North Carolina Vs. Michigan State

First of all I would like to take this time to say GO STATE!!! (Deep Breath). Ok, this will be a great matchup with the best team in College Hoops and one of the most up-tempoist team you can play in the Spartans. Of course being a Sparty fan i'm going with them but I think that Hansbrough will have no problem lighting up the Spartans in the post but that is ONLY if Suton doesn't play! Once again good matchup and who ever comes out of this game alive should be reckoned with.
Penn State Vs. Georgia Tech

I actually got the chance to watch the Nittany Lions play and there not horrible, but I think that the Yellow Jackets can run away with this one, and advance to 5-0.
Michigan Vs. Maryland
Suprisingly, i'm gonna go with the Wolverines in a tight matchup that will most likely be determined in over-time. With Maryland returning from the Old Spice Classic as getting their arses spanked against Georgetown and the questionable playing ability of Vasquez, don't be suprised if this one sways to the Big Ten.
Florida State Vs. Northwestern

To be quite honest with you, i'm not sure if this game is going to be good or not, but I can tell you that the Seminoles are undefeated and I think things will stay that way as the last game of the challenge goes to the ACC.

Well, with my predictions and some already played games I have the ACC winning once again with 6 games to 5 games. Once again, thx for reading my blog and sorry if it's not real in depth but this is my first one and i'm only a 17 Yr old so gimme a break,lol. Happy Holidays and enjoy another exciting College Hoops season!
