Report: Florida State to host Indiana in Big Ten / ACC Challenge

A rematch?  Why not.

The latest detail of the Indiana 2020-21 basketball schedule emerged on Thursday afternoon.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported on his Twitter page that IU will travel to Florida State in connection with the Big Ten / ACC Challenge.

(UPDATE:  Rothstein’s report was confirmed by Indiana on Friday.  The game will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 9.)

Indiana defeated the Seminoles 80-64 in connection with the event last season in Bloomington.  Senior guard Devonte Green made five three-pointers and scored 30 points in the contest.  Indiana shot 55 percent from the field and outrebounded FSU 35-25 for the game.

IU is 8-11 all-time in Big Ten / ACC challenge games.

The game will mark the sixth meeting between FSU and IU and it will be the first trip to Tallahassee for the Hoosiers.  Indiana has never lost in the series.  Here are the five previous meetings:

  • Dec. 3 2019:  Indiana 80-64 (Bloomington)
  • Nov. 25 1992:  Indiana 81-78 (at New York)
  • Mar. 26 1992:  Indiana 85-74 (at Albuquerque)
  • Mar. 16 1991:  Indiana 82-60 (at Louisville)
  • Dec. 8 1975:    Indiana 83-59 (at Indianapolis)
