NCAA Basketball: Penn State at Boston College Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

In the book that is the media guide for the Boston College Eagles’ men’s basketball team, there is a section that lists the Eagles’ record against every team they have played.

This upcoming season, the Eagles will be able to add another entry.

BC will have a road game against Big Ten opponent Nebraska, the first time the two teams will meet, as part of the 2017 Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

Nebraska finished one spot above last place in last year’s Big Ten standings, and finished the year 12-19. Nebraska was 0-2 against ACC teams last year, falling to both Clemson and Va. Tech during the season.

The Eagles did not participate in the 2016-17 Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Eagles last participated during the 2015-16 Big Ten/ACC Challenge, falling to Penn State 67-58.

The ACC leads the overall series 11-5-2, and won last year’s challenge 9-5, snapping a two year winning streak for the Big Ten.
