B1G / ACC Football Challenge

Over the past two days, 12 teams from the ACC and 12 from the B1G competed to a 6-6 tie in the B1G / ACC Basketball Challenge.  It is very likely that we may see Ohio State vs. Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game, so lets complete the theoretical B1G / ACC Challenge for this year.  My pick in bold.

  1. Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) vs Florida State (12-0, 8-0)  (Championship game favorites)
  2. Michigan State (11-1, 8-0) vs Duke (10-2, 6-2)       (Championship game underdogs)
  3. Wisconsin (9-3, 6-2)) vs Clemson (10-2, 7-1)
  4. Iowa (8-4, 5-3)) vs Virginia Tech (8-4, 5-3)
  5. Nebraska (8-4, 5-3) vs Miami, FL (9-3, 5-3)
  6. Minnesota (8-4, 4-4) vs Georgia Tech (7-5, 5-3)
  7. Penn State (7-5, 4-4) vs Syracuse (6-6, 4-4)
  8. Michigan (7-5, 3-5) vs Boston College (7-5, 4-4)
  9. Indiana (5-7, 3-5) vs North Carolina (6-6, 4-4)
  10. Northwestern (5-7, 1-7) vs Maryland (7-5, 3-5)
  11. Illinois (4-8, 1-7) vs Pittsburgh (6-6, 3-5)
  12. Purdue (1-11, 0-8) vs Wake Forest (2-6, 4-8)

A 6-6 tie.

If played next year.

  1. Ohio State vs Florida State
  2. Michigan State vs Clemson
  3. Wisconsin vs Virginia Tech
  4. Iowa vs Georgia Tech
  5. Nebraska vs Miami, FL
  6. Penn State vs Pittsburgh
  7. Michigan vs Louisville
  8. Minnesota vs Boston College
  9. Northwestern vs Duke
  10. Indiana vs North Carolina
  11. Illinois vs NC State
  12. Purdue vs Wake Forest
  13. Rutgers vs Syracuse
  14. Maryland vs Virginia

but it is a little early to start making picks on next years games.
