After falling to Penn State in last year's ACC/B1G Challenge, the Boston College Eagles will not be participating in the yearly tournament pitting teams from each conference against each other.
ACC/Big Ten Challenge— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) May 24, 2016
The snub comes following a disastrous season for the Eagles, finishing winless in conference matchups.
The 2016 incarnation of the tournament will include marquee matchups, including Michigan State vs. Duke, North Carolina vs. Indiana, and Syracuse vs. Wisconsin.
This marks the second time in three years that the Eagles have been left out of the challenge. The Eagles were left out of the 2014 tournament before receiving an invite to the 2015 tournament, losing to Penn State 67-58 in front of a sparse crowd at Conte Forum.
