Notre Dame, Ind. --- Notre Dame's matchup with the Iowa in the 15th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge presented by DICK's Sporting Goods that is set to take place on Tuesday, Dec. 3 in Iowa City, Iowa will be televised by ESPN2 at 9:15 p.m. (ET).  The Irish, who are set to begin play in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2013-14, will be making their first-ever appearance in the event. 

The contest at Carver-Hawkeye Arena is part of a 12-game series involving teams from the two conferences over two nights of basketball (Dec. 3-4).  ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 12 games of the two-day event matching top college basketball programs playing for conference supremacy and the Commissioners Cup.

 Every game will also be available through WatchESPN, accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, through ESPN on Xbox LIVE to Gold members and on Apple TV to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.

 All 12 Big Ten teams and 12 of the 15 ACC teams will participate in the 2013 Challenge. In addition to Notre Dame, former BIG EAST foes Syracuse and Pittsburgh are also playing in the event and are slated for the night of action.

 The ACC and Big Ten split last year's Challenge with six wins each. In the event of a tie, the Commissioner's Cup remains with the conference that won the previous year, which was the Big Ten in 2011. The ACC holds a 10-3-1 Challenge record, winning the first 10 events (1999-2008) while the Big Ten won the next three (2009-2011).
