There is nothing left but the waiting. Wisconsin and North Carolina both carry 6-6 all-time records into this year's Big Ten/ACC Challenge tilt. Bo Ryan has coached 10 of those and broken even (5-5). Roy Williams boasts a gaudy 6-2 record in series games.

Traveling to Chapel Hill and playing a North Carolina team just days removed from the No. 1 ranking in the land may be the toughest challenge of Wisconsin's season. We broke down some of the matchups to watch earlier today. If nothing else, tonight will give us a good idea how Wisconsin compares to Michigan State, who previously lost to the Tar Heels in the Carrier Classic.
