Penn State Hoops Will Play Wake Forest In Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Penn State men’s basketball will host Wake Forest as part of this season’s Big Ten/ACC challenge. The two teams will square off on December 4 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

This game will mark the two teams’ first-ever meeting in the Big Ten/ACC challenge and just the third all-time meeting between the programs. Penn State picked up a 67-63 victory over the Demon Deacons in the 1989 Fiesta Bowl Classic. Wake Forest won its first contest against Penn State in 1960.

Last season, Wake Forest struggled to a 14th-place finish in conference play and an 11-20 overall record. Only Notre Dame and Pitt posted worse records in conference play than the Demon Deacons, who finished the year with a 4-14 ACC mark.

Pat Chambers owns a 5-3 record in Big Ten/ACC challenge contests during his time in charge of the Nittany Lions, including a 63-62 upset win over then-No. 13 Virginia Tech at the BJC last season. Penn State’s overall record in the Big Ten/ACC challenge is 9-9.

In addition to the Big Ten/ACC challenge, the Nittany Lions will also participate in this season’s Gavitt Games series, which will pit Big Ten squads against teams in the Big East. Penn State will take on Georgetown on November 14 in Washington, DC.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard. If you, for some reason, feel compelled to see what Mikey has to say on the internet, follow him on Twitter @Mikey_Mandarino. You can also get in touch with Mikey via his big-boy email address: [email protected]
