The Wildcats are scheduled to face Wake Forest in the 2016 ACC-Big Ten Challenge, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported Monday.

The annual series pits teams from each conference against each other over the course of a weekend. Northwestern faced Virginia Tech in the 2015 incarnation and beat the Hokies 81-79 in overtime.

The matchup against Wake Forest adds to a developing non-conference schedule that will feature contests against Butler and Dayton, as well an opportunity to participate in the Legends Classic, a four-team early season tournament also featuring Colorado, Notre Dame and Texas.
