The Providence Friars and Illinois Fighting Illini will tangle at the Dunkin Donuts Center this coming season as part of the first-ever Big East-Big Ten Challenge.

This news comes from CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein who has reported a string of matchups involving the two conferences as part of the first annual Gavitt Games.

Since the 1979-80 season, Illinois and Providence have met twice, splitting the two matchups.
