The Nebraska basketball team will host Wake Forest in the 2011 Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The two-day event will have all 12 teams from both the Big Ten and ACC participating with the Huskers joining the Big Ten on July 1.
Wake Forest is coached by former Colorado head coach Jeff Bzdelik. Wake Forest, which went 8-24 in 2010-11, featured one of the youngest starting lineups in the country, starting three freshmen in its final nine games.
The Nov. 30 matchup between the Huskers and Demon Deacons will be the first time Nebraska has hosted an ACC school. Miami is the only ACC member to ever play in Lincoln, when the Huskers topped the Hurricanes, 85-58 on Nov. 18, 1970. That meeting took place prior to Miami joining the ACC.
