Maryland men’s basketball will reportedly travel to face the Clemson Tigers as part of the 2020 ACC/Big Ten Challenge, according to CBS Sports’s Jon Rothstein.

The team’s spokesperson would not confirm if the matchup has been planned or scheduled.

Maryland has gone 1-5 in the challenge since joining the Big Ten in 2014, winning its first game last season against Notre Dame. As a member of the ACC, the Terps posted a 10-5 record.
