Northwestern to play Virginia Tech in ACC-Big Ten Challenge

Northwestern will travel to Blacksburg Dec. 1 to play Virginia Tech in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge this season.

The trip will serve as an unexpected homecoming for graduate transfer Joey van Zegeren who played three years for the Hokies before transferring to NU for 2015-16.

The Hokies went 11-22 and 2-16 in conference last season under first-year head coach Buzz Williams. The match-up with the Wildcats will be the first ever meeting between the two programs.

Northwestern is 6-10 all-time in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge and lost to Georgia Tech 66-58 at home last season, Chris Collins’ second loss in the challenge.
