This year’s series includes 14 games over three days, spread over two games on Monday, six games on Tuesday, and six more games to close out on Wednesday.

Monday’s matches were a great sample of the main course on Tuesday and Wednesday.

In Monday’s opener, Shawn Pedulla scored 17 points and Justin Motts added 16 as Virginia Tech beat Minnesota 67-57. Pedulla was 8-for-13 Hockey (7-1) undefeated in five home games this season. Virginia Tech beat Minnesota 42-27 and scored 11 on offense.

The ACC took a 2-0 lead in the ACC/Big Ten challenge when Pitt nailed an easy 87-58 road win against Northwestern as Blake Hinson shot 4-for-5 from 3-point range and scored 22 points as the Panthers posted their highest-scoring game in the past two seasons .

Big Ten/ACC Challenge schedule on Tuesday

Penn State at Clemson

7 pm | ESPNU and fuboTV (try for free)

This is an even game between two teams, so I just take the home team and train with Clemson. The Tigers were 11-5 at home last season, and this season has looked good overall even in two losses to South Carolina and Iowa. Expect a slam dunk, draw type game that has Clemson playing its own pace in front of its home crowd. . Pick: Clemson -1

No. 22 Maryland at Louisville

7 pm | ESPN2 and fuboTV (try for free)

Louisville is 0-6 on the season with the worst turnover among energy programs and horrific accuracy to date in shooting. Leaning against Maryland – even at home – doesn’t look like it would be the place to get the cards. I think they can cover a double-digit spread, but the 6-0 Terps aren’t quietly making a strong start to the season with a well-balanced attack on both offense and defense that should make this relatively smooth sailing. Pick: Maryland -12

Syracuse at No. 16 Illinois

7:30 PM | ESPN and fuboTV (try for free)

Don’t like taking favorites to cover this wide spread, but my convictions tell me Illinois is good. . . Syracuse is that average. Eleni is almost always at home nails under Brad Underwood. They’ve got a Syracuse team that recently passed the contest by two OT games in their last three games and lost to Bryant. Illinois 79, Syracuse 65 feels right. Pick: Illinois -11

Forrest woke up in Wisconsin

9 pm | ESPN2 and fuboTV (try for free)

This game has real potential to be one of the best challenges this week. Really good guard play on both ends could lead to some good offensive play from both Wake and Wisconsin. The Badgers have the talent advantage and the place advantage, though, so I love them in that spot to win and cover the six points. Pick: Wisconsin -6.5

Georgia Tech in Iowa

9 pm | ESPNU and fuboTV (try for free)

This looks like a trap. Iowa is the obvious pick here – they’ve shown they can take on teams of equal or greater talent like Georgia Tech by this margin already – so I’m just going to go against my instincts and take GT points. Iowa’s defense isn’t good enough to hold teams down consistently right now, so taking the Yellow Jackets is the move. Choose: Georgia Tech +16

No. 3 Virginia at Michigan

9:30 PM | ESPN and fuboTV (try for free)

My surprise picks for the table on Tuesday. Virginia has arguably earned a top-five resume for college hoops so far this season with its remodeled offense and stifling defense. But Michigan presents real challenges both in terms of size (Hunter Dickinson), height (Jet Howard) and experience (Jaylen Llewellyn). Within Michigan’s own arena, I think this is a great place to announce themselves on a big stage against a real quality team. Pick: Michigan +4.5

Wednesday’s Big Ten/ACC Challenge schedule

No. 25 Ohio State at No. 17 Duke | 7:15 PM | ESPN
No. 5 Purdue in Florida 7:15 p.m. | ESPN2
Rutgers in Miami | 7:15 PM | aspno
No. 18 North Carolina at No. 10 Indiana | 9:15 PM | ESPN
No. 20 Michigan State at Notre Dame | 9:15 PM | ESPN2
