SEC/BIG 12 CHALLENGE MATCHUPS ANNOUNCED FOR 2014

IRVING, Texas - The Big 12 and Southeastern Conferences have announced the matchups for the 2014 SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

“The Big 12 was thrilled with the success of the Challenge last season,” said Commissioner Bob Bowlsby.  “We are equally excited about this year’s games that will continue to add quality opponents to our strong non-conference schedules as we look to defend our performance as the nation’s No. 1 conference.”

All games in the Challenge are scheduled over a four-day span, from December 3-6.  ESPN will provide exclusive coverage of all 10 games on it networks.  Additional components of the event, including start times and exact network information, will be announced at a later date. 

The Challenge includes eight teams ranked in the early ESPN.com “Fab 50” rankings overall, with five Big 12 teams rated in the top 25 - No. 1 Kentucky, No. 4 Kansas, No. 6 Texas, No. 7 Florida, No. 18 Iowa State, No. 19 Oklahoma, No. 25 K-State and No. 44 LSU.  Two games will pit ranked teams against each other - Florida at Kansas and Texas at Kentucky.

Last season, the Big 12 won the Challenge by capturing wins in seven of the 10 meetings.  The Big 12 has posted a 35-23  (.603) record in the last two challenge series it has played (vs. Pac-10, SEC) dating back to 2007.
