You can now add another basketball game to your calendar as UK officially announced its Big 12/SEC Challenge game Thursday morning.
As predicted, Kentucky will travel to Morgantown to play at West Virginia in the Cats’ annual Big 12/SEC Challenge contest. That one will be played on Saturday, January 27 and will air on one of the stations within the ESPN family of networks.
The trip will be only the program’s third all-time to lovely Mo’town, but the Mountaineers are a familiar foe to Big Blue Nation, especially during the Calipari era. We last saw Bob Huggins’ team in the 2015 NCAA tournament when Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Harrison and the boys dominated West Virginia in the Sweet 16 game and doubled them up on the scoreboard, 78-39.
As for the rest of the Big 12/SEC slate, here’s the full list of the head-to-heads:
Kentucky at West Virginia
Texas A&M at Kansas
Baylor at Florida
Oklahoma at Alabama
Ole Miss at Texas
Oklahoma State at Arkansas
Texas Tech at South Carolina
TCU at Vanderbilt
Tennessee at Iowa State
Georgia at Kansas State
So who’s ready for a trip to Morgantown?
