Kentucky at Kansas
Iowa State at Texas A&M
Vanderbilt at Texas
Oklahoma at LSU
Texas Tech at Arkansas
Oklahoma State at Auburn
West Virginia at Florida
Georgia at Baylor
Ole Miss at Kansas State
Tennessee at TCU

Some pretty good matchups. Excited to see the Dores take a run at Shaka. All games will be played January 30th, which I like too.

Kentucky-Kansas should be the perennial game,, especially in the years where we don't already matchup in the Champion's Classic. It's likely the two best programs in the country from a visibility standpoint, certainly in these two conferences. It's the top game in this challenge even with Kentucky being down.

Guess this means Kansas is coming to Rupp next year, since Cal said we're not playing on the road in this challenge unless the our opponent returns the game in Rupp.

Kansas will want revenge after how we embarrased them last year.

Making way too early predictions without knowing what things will look like in January, I give the Big 12 a better chance than not to win this year.

They'll be pretty good. They return mostly everyone from a sweet 16 group. Don't be fooled by their bad loss to a motivated UK team. Their press can be tough on a loose team. They are typical Huggs smash mouth too.

Appreciate it. I'd assume we won't beat them then.

What do you want JSHD? We play Texas Tech this year. TCU the next two seasons. Then Michigan the next two.

They lose Staten, Browne, and Noreen. It will be interesting to see if they press as much next season. Main reason he did it this year was because of the lack of outside shooting on the club and turning teams over was the best way for them to score. Any Huggins team will be tough and will rebound

Absolutely. I think conference challenges should happen every year in football. Designate one weekend in September. You can even rotate conferences every year.

Sounds good to me. Sick of our typical boring OOC opponents (the ECUs, UCFs, UNCs, etc).

That will never happen. too many variables to get past

Texas Tech? Weak....pretty said Anderson is in his 5th year and hogs arent highly thought of enough to always get a high profile game in this challenge.

OK/LSU should be a good game, too. Same for WV/UF.

I like Ark's match up with Texas Tech. We played them in football in 2014 and play them again this year. So it will be neat to see them on the court.
