The second annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge - an early-season men's basketball event showcasing all 10 Big 12 teams and 10 of the 14 SEC programs - will be played over four days from December 3-6. Additional details, including start times and network designation, will be announced at a later date.

ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 10 games between the two premier conferences. All 10 games will also be available via WatchESPN. The inaugural event in 2013, which took place in November and December, saw the Big 12 winning seven of the 10 games.

Two games will feature a matchup of teams in the latest ESPN.com early preseason poll: No. 9 Florida at No. 10 Kansas and No. 17 Texas at No. 1 Kentucky. Additional Challenge teams ranked in the early poll include: No. 16 Iowa State, No. 19 Oklahoma and No. 23 Kansas State.
