    SEC/Big East Challenge Matchups Announced

    The Southeastern Conference will match up against the Big East Conference for 12 games over three days in late November and early December for the SEC/Big East Challenge.  Six of the games will be played at SEC home arenas while six will be played at home facilities for Big East schools. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 12 games of the three-day event.
     
    This is the sixth year that the SEC and Big East have played each other as a part of an in-season event. Previously known as the SEC/Big East Invitational, the first four years of the event (2007-2010) featured four matchups between the two conferences from two neutral sites. The 12-team event was titled the Big East/SEC Challenge in 2011.
