From insidethehall.com:

"Indiana will play Duke for the third time in four seasons in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge, according to a report published late Thursday afternoon.

Jon Rothstein of FRS Sports reported that the Hoosiers will play the Blue Devils in Durham in the 2018 iteration of the annual challenge between two of the nation’s premier conferences.

Indiana fell to Duke in last season’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge contest in Bloomington, 91-81. In 2015, the Hoosiers lost 94-74 in Durham. Duke leads the all-time series between the two schools, 6-3.

The dates for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge are Nov. 26-28."

The Hoosiers highly anticipated 2018-2019 just got way more interesting after finding out they would be traveling to North Carolina to face the Blue Devils in November. 

Four of the top five recruits from the class of 2018 will be represented in this game with three of them playing for Duke, and the fourth of course being Romeo Langford for the Hoosiers. 

It will be a more than challenging test for Archie Miller's squad early in the season to gauge where his young, but talented, team is.

What are the odds that Dick Vitale is on this game?
