All 10 of the Big Ten's baseball-playing institutions will once again compete in the 2010 Challenge, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State and Purdue. The BIG EAST will send 10 teams to the 2010 event, as Louisville, Rutgers and Villanova will make their first appearances and will be joined by seven squads making a return trip - Cincinnati, Connecticut, Notre Dame, St. John's, Seton Hall, USF and West Virginia. Games will be played daily in St. Petersburg at the Raymond A.
