Indiana to host Duke in Big Ten-ACC Challenge

Indiana’s non-conference schedule just got even more daunting.

The Hoosiers will host Duke in the 2017 Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Indiana played at Duke in the 2015 Big Ten-ACC Challenge and lost, 94-74.

Duke went 28-9 last season and is a top 10 team in nearly every preseason top 25 for next season. The Blue Devils return Grayson Allen and Marques Bolden and welcome a recruiting class that includes Wendell Carter, Trevon Duval and Gary Trent Jr.

Indiana will also play at Seton Hall in the Gavitt Tipoff Games and at Louisville in early December. The Hoosiers will also take on Notre Dame in mid-December in the annual Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

In addition to this season’s challenging non-conference slate, Big Ten teams are also expected to play two conference games in early December during the weekend of the Big Ten Football Championship game.

Other notable Big Ten-ACC Challenge matchups include Louisville at Purdue, Michigan at North Carolina, Wisconsin at Virginia, Miami at Minnesota, Notre Dame at Michigan State and Northwestern at Georgia Tech.
