The pairings for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge in women’s basketball were announced on Monday, with Nebraska getting a premier matchup against Louisville.
Nebraska will travel to play the Cardinals in Louisville, Kentucky, on Nov. 29. Louisville reached the NCAA Final Four last season, finishing with a 36-3 record. Louisville, which is coached by former Nebraska assistant coach Jeff Walz, will return four of five starters, including first-team All-American Asia Durr.
Nebraska coach Amy Williams was a player at Nebraska when Walz was an assistant coach. Last year Nebraska lost its game in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge against Clemson 67-66 in Lincoln.
