2013 College Basketball:Big 10/ACC ChallengeDecember 03, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, the North Carolina Tar Heels will face consensus No. 1 Michigan State Spartans in the Big 10/ACC Challenge. Game time is set at 9PM and will be held at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, MI.

North Carolina has been inconsistent on how they play their opponents this season. After they scored an upset win over No. 3 Louisville last Nov. 23, they got burned by UAB the next day. The Tar Heels must bring their A-game if they want to beat Michigan State.

Michigan State hopes to continue its seven-game unbeaten run since the start of the season. They have won over McNeese State, Kentucky, Columbia, Portland, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma and Mount St. Mary's. The Spartans must not let their guard down against the Tar Heels in order for them the preserve their unblemished record.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Michigan State as the favorite to beat North Carolina on Wednesday night.
