The Nebraska women’s basketball team will collide with Clemson in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Thursday, Nov. 30, the Big Ten Conference announced on Wednesday.
The conference announced the 14-game challenge schedule, which includes five games on Wednesday, Nov. 29, and nine contests on Thursday, Nov. 30, including Nebraska’s game with the Tigers in Lincoln. It will mark the 11th season for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, which is scheduled to continue through the 2020-21 campaign. Last year, the ACC won the challenge, 9-5, after the two conferences split the challenge (7-7) in both 2014 and 2015.
Nebraska’s game with Clemson will be just the second in school history between the two women’s basketball programs. The only previous contest came back on Nov. 24, 1984, when the Tigers knocked off the Huskers, 99-84, in the championship game of the Nebraska Invitational at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
