BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Maryland and Virginia will renew their basketball rivalry — now as nonconference foes.

The Terrapins will host the Cavaliers in the 16th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge in December. It's the first time Maryland will be representing the Big Ten in the event after leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Terps beat Virginia in overtime in their final regular-season ACC game in March.

Fellow Big Ten newcomer Rutgers will play at Clemson, while ACC addition Louisville will host Ohio State.

The marquee matchups announced by ESPN on Thursday include Duke at Wisconsin, Syracuse at Michigan, Iowa at North Carolina, and Michigan State at Notre Dame.

With the expansion of the two conferences, the event is increasing from 12 to 14 games, which will be held Dec. 1-3.
