The Wisconsin Badger women's basketball team will take on Virginia in the inaugural Big Ten/ACC Challenge for women's basketball. The annual event will span at least four years and will begin in the fall of 2007. The Big Ten/ACC Challenge will match 11 teams from each conference in head-to-head competition traditionally on the first Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after Thanksgiving, following the men's basketball Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Wisconsin last played Virginia in the 2007 WNIT Tournament and beat the Cavaliers.
The Big Ten and ACC conference offices will coordinate the 11-game schedule each season, and it may include rematches from year-to-year.
