Mark your calendars for November 29th. The ACC/Big Ten Tournament is going to have some marquee games this year, with the headliner being held in Cameron Indoor Stadium as the Spartans come to face the Blue Devils.
This is going to be an early season test for a young Spartan team that lost some major leadership in Valentine, Forbes and Costello. However the Spartans do have quite a few players who were on the 2015 Final Four team that played the eventual national champion Duke team.
The Spartans have faced off against Duke 12 times in school history with Duke winning 10 of those match-ups. The Big Ten has not lost the Challenge since 2008, winning the five of the last seven (2012 and 2013 were split)
According to CBS Sports' "Way too early" rankings, Michigan State is coming in ranked 6th in the nation while Duke takes the top spot.
