The Big 12 and SEC announced Tuesday that the conferences will square-off in a men’s basketball challenge next season.
The Big 12/SEC Challenge will include five teams that are ranked in the top 25 preseason poll on ESPN.com: No. 1 Kentucky, No. 5 Kansas, No. 7 Florida, No. 11 Oklahoma State and No. 19 Baylor.
The premier match-ups are No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 19 Baylor on Dec. 6 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas and No. 5 Kansas at No. 7 Florida on Dec. 10
The Sooners will face Texas A&M on Dec. 21 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. (Last season, the Sooners beat Texas A&M to win the All-College Classic.)
The challenge mark’s the first for Big 12 men’s basketball since the four-year series with the Pac-10 from 2007 to 2010. The Big 1 held the advantage 28-20 in that challenge.
