Michigan to play at UNC in ACC/Big Ten Challenge
Written by Matt Pargoff   

The Wolverines learned who they will face in the 2017 ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Thursday and it’s a tough one. Michigan will travel to Chapel Hill to take on the defending National Champion North Carolina team in first ever non-neutral site regular season meeting between the two programs.

Date, time and network information will be announced at a later date, but the 14-game series between the two conferences is slated for Nov. 27-30 with all games appearing on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

Michigan has played North Carolina five times previously, with the Tar Heels holding a 3-2 edge in the series. The last meeting was in the 1993 National Championship game, best known for its awkward ending that saw Chris Webber get away with travel, only to be called for a technical foul at the opposite end of the court when signaling for a timeout that was unavailable.

The Wolverines hold a 7-9 record in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, winning four of their last seven matchups.
