Tuesday night showdown.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

The dates for the 14 games making up the annual ACC-Big 10 Challenge have been released, and Louisville’s trip to Purdue will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Here’s the full schedule for this year’s event:

Monday, Nov. 27

Maryland at Syracuse

Wisconsin at Virginia

Tuesday, Nov. 28

Northwestern at Georgia Tech

Louisville at Purdue

Florida State at Rutgers

Illinois at Wake Forest

Iowa at Virginia Tech

Wednesday, Nov. 29

Duke at Indiana

Miami at Minnesota

Boston College at Nebraska

Michigan at North Carolina

Penn State at NC State

Clemson at Ohio State

Thursday, Nov. 30

Notre Dame at Michigan State

It would appear as though Louisville-Purdue will be the “showcase” game for that Tuesday, meaning we’re likely looking at an ESPN game that would tip at 9.

Even without double-double machine Caleb Swanigan, Purdue figures to be a formidable foe this season. Matt Painter returns the other four starters from a team that made the Sweet 16 and finished No. 15 in the final AP and USA Today polls for 2016-17. Louisville defeated the Boilermakers 71-64 at the KFC Yum Center in last year’s Challenge.
