and Feb. 9 in Columbus, Ohio.
In addition, the ACC announced a home-and-home series with the league’s top two teams will begin March 13 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
All the teams are scheduled to play three games.
Here are the details:Game 1: The ACC hosts the Virginia Cavaliers on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 7:30 p.m.
Game 2: The Cavaliers host the Miami Hurricanes on Thursday, Feb 8, 7:15 p.s.
ET at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.
For the ACC, the game is the first game of a home and home series between the ACC and Big Ten since the 2010-11 season.
This will be the first meeting between the conference’s two top teams in 2021.
Last year, the league won a record eight of nine meetings between the two.
There has been a lot of discussion about the lack of top-five teams in the ACC this season.
The league is ranked No. 8 in KenPom, and the ACC is one of the top five conferences in the country in Kenpom’s ratings.
The ACC has a great schedule.
It includes a Big East schedule with a perfect 10-0 mark and two top-10 teams, including the No. 3 team in the nation, and a schedule featuring four top-25 teams.
Its a tough conference to predict, and I don’t know that there’s a consensus in the college basketball community on which conference is going to be the top.
The ACC, by and large, seems to have the most to gain from playing in its new home, even if the ACC isn’t the most exciting conference to watch.
We will see how the Big East responds to the challenge of hosting the first Big 12 tournament in 2021, and whether the league is able to get better in the second half of the season.
