LET’S RUN IT BACK!

Thursday morning news of the upcoming Big Ten/ACC Challenge dropped on good ol’ Twitter and, folks, we’ll give you a hint on who MSU has.

THAT’S RIGHT BABY, Duke is coming to East Lansing on Dec. 3 for their first trip to MSU since 2003. This will obviously be a huge match as Tre Jones, Vernon Carey and the chalk outline of Javin DeLaurier will be trying to unseat consensus preseason No. 1 MSU.

Other marquee matchups this winter include Virginia at Purdue, Notre Dame at Maryland, Ohio State at North Carolina and, of course, Rutgers at Pitt.

MSU has a sub-.500 record in this annual series, sitting at 8-11 after last year’s forgettable loss at Louisville. However, the Spartans are strong at home with a 7-2 record in Breslin during the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

The last time Duke and MSU met in the series was in 2016 when things didn’t go well to the tune of a 78-69 Blue Devils win. The last time the two met in general? ROLL THE TAPE!!!!
