The 19th annual ACC-Big Ten matchups have been announced, and FSU will travel to Rutgers, who are apparently a member of the Big Ten.

This will be the 2nd matchup for these two programs. They last faced one another in 1967 (1-0 baby!).

Rutgers was terrible last season, finishing 4-18 against teams ranked in Ken Pomeroy’s top 150. They should be slightly improved next year. At least it is a road game for FSU, so it won’t be an RPI killer regardless of the outcome.

FSU is 7-11 all time in the Challenge. The Seminoles tipped off last year’s event by beating Minnesota, which was one of four NCAA Tournament teams FSU beat in non-conference play.
