Richard Pitino's Minnesota Gophers will head to Winston-Salem, N.C. next season, where they will face Wake Forest as part of the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The seventh meeting between the two teams is set to take place on Tuesday, Dec. 6. Game time will be scheduled at a later date.

Wake Forest went 17-16 last season and missed the NCAA tournament for the fourth straight year. The Demon Deacons are now under the guidance of new head coach Danny Manning, who took over the program in April following the resignation of former coach Jeff Bzdelik

The Gophers last played Wake Forest in the opening round of the 2006 NIT tournament - a 73-58 Minnesota victory.

The Gophers are 7-8 all-time in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
