In the present paper we find a bijection between the set of small covers over an $n$-cube and the set of acyclic digraphs with $n$ labeled nodes. Using this, we give a formula of the number of small covers over an $n$-cube (generally, a product of simplices) up to Davis-Januszkiewicz equivalence classes and $\mathbf{Z}^n$-equivariant diffeomorphism classes. Moreover we prove that the number of acyclic digraphs with $n$ unlabeled nodes is an upper bound of the number of small covers over an
