Iowa Plays Wake Forest in ACC/Big 10 Challenge

Posted:

Iowa will play at Wake Forest on Nov. 30 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The Hawkeyes and Demon Deacons will meet for the second time in the event. Wake Forest beat Iowa 56-47 in Iowa City in 2007.

Both teams will have first-year head coaches next season. Iowa recently hired Fran McCaffery, who played at Wake Forest in 1997-78, while former Colorado coach Jeff Bzdelik (Biz-DELL-ik) takes over the Demon Deacons.

Iowa is 2-7 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Hawkeyes lost at home to Virginia Tech last season.

Marquee matchups in the event include Michigan State at Duke and North Carolina at Illinois.
