Wisconsin will go on the road this season to match up with Virginia for the annual Big Ten-ACC challenge. The Badgers defeated the Cavaliers 48-38 in 2013 as part of the same challenge.

The date, television network, and time of the game will be announced at a later date. Here is the full slate of games:

This matchup once again brings back some family history between the two programs. Virginia head coach Tony Bennett is the son of former Badgers' coach Dick Bennett, who led Wisconsin to the 2000 Final Four.

The Badgers' full schedule will be released later this summer, but these are the opponents we know right now:

  • at Virginia (Big Ten-ACC Challenge)
  • at Temple
  • vs Marquette
  • vs Xavier (Gavitt Games)
  • vs Western Kentucky
  • vs Baylor, Creighton, or UCLA (two of these games as a part of the Hall of Fame Classic)

Wisconsin defeated Syracuse 77-60 at home in the 2016 Big Ten-ACC Challenge.
