Wisconsin will host Syracuse at the Kohl Center for the 2016 Big Ten/ACC Challenge, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported Tuesday night. The Big Ten conference made the matchups official Tuesday afternoon, listing the Badgers-Orange matchup for Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Network assignments and tipoff times will be assigned at a later date, but all Challenge games will air on an ESPN network -- good news, of course, because that means you'll be able to stream on WatchESPN if needed.

Wisconsin and Syracuse met in last year's Challenge, when the Badgers escaped Syracuse with a 66-58 overtime win on Dec. 2, upsetting an Orange team that was ranked No. 14 at the time.

Syracuse and Wisconsin each went on to make impressive NCAA tournament runs, adding to the intrigue for this year's matchup. The Orange reached the Final Four as a No. 10 seed before losing to No. 1 seed North Carolina; the Badgers reached the Sweet 16 as a No. 7 seed before losing to Notre Dame.
