Back on April 22, we learned that the Virginia men's basketball team would face Penn State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. On Wednesday we learned that a lot of eyes will be on this match up.
The game will be broadcast in front of a national audience on ESPN2 on November 30 at 7:00pm. The match up is the only game of the event on that date, and opens up the 2009 ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Penn State is coming off a season in which the Nittany Lions just missed the NCAA Tournament, and settled for an NIT win. The Lions topped Baylor to take home that title. Virginia is 5-2 all time against PSU, and has not faced the Lions since 1985.
We will bring you more information on Virginia's 2009-2010 schedule as that information becomes available.
