On Tonight: 11/29/11

Got the Big Ten/ACC Challenge this week, so plenty of good viewing mid-week leading up to some real treats on the weekend.

Tuesday's Big Ten/ACC slate below, complete with Time Warner previews. And, what the heck, I'll predict the winners, too.

Michigan at Virginia (7 p.m. Eastern, ESPN2)
"Tim Hardaway Jr. and Joe Harris are stellar sophomore guards for these squads. The Big Ten has taken [the Challenge] 6-5 the last two seasons."
(Prediction: Michigan)

Northwestern at Georgia Tech (7:15 p.m. Eastern, ESPNU)
"Bill Carmody's Wildcats have won three in a row in [the Challenge], while Brian Gregory takes over a Tech squad that's on a three-game skid."
(Prediction: Northwestern)

Illinois at Maryland (7:30 p.m. Eastern, ESPN)
"Mark Turgeon takes over the Terrapins, whose six-game win streak in [the Challenge] includes two victories over Illinois. Junior guards D.J. Richardson and Brandon Paul spark the Illini."
(Prediction: Maryland)

Miami at Purdue (9 p.m. Eastern, ESPN2)
"New coach Jim Larranaga's Hurricanes blow into West Lafayette to tackle Boilermaker seniors Robbie Hummel and Lewis Jackson."
(Prediction: Purdue)

Clemson at Iowa (9:15 p.m. Eastern, ESPNU)
"Reigning Big Ten assists leader Bryce Cartwright and Clemson senior Andre Young head the backcourts."
(Prediction: Clemson)

Duke at Ohio State (9:30 p.m. Eastern, ESPN)
"Jared Sullinger rubs elbows with the Plumlee brothers in a matchup of top performers from each conference in this 13th-year event. Duke is 11-1 while the Buckeyes are 5-5."
(Prediction: Ohio State)
