Huskers Draw Canes in Challenge

Bradley Leeb-US PRESSWIRE

The Huskers learned about a piece of their schedule today as ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchups were announced today.

In their third ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the Huskers will face someone not named Wake Forest. The two confereneces announced the 2013 matchups for the annual hoops festival and the Huskers drew a pretty sexy draw. Nebraska will host the Miami Hurricanes on Wednesday Dec. 4.

The Hurricanes reached the Sweet 16 in the most recent NCAA tournament as a #2 seed and won both the ACC regular season and conference tournament titles climbing as high as #2 the national ratings. Head Coach Jim Laranaga will bring a very different team into the new Pinnacle Bank Arena, however. The Canes replace their entire starting lineup and top six scorers overall.

Both teams will look very different from the squads they put on the floor last season as the Huskers themselves will see no fewer than seven new player enter the equation next season. This should be an quality early test for the Huskers as they continue to build their program under second year Head Coach Tim Miles.

This will be the first meeting for these two teams since an 82-67 Husker win in Miami on Dec. 30, 2006 and the first time for Miami to visit Lincoln since 1970.

Game time and television listings still have yet to be announced, though all games will be carried on the ESPN family of networks.
