Columbia, Mo. - The Southeastern Conference and ESPN announced matchups for the 2014 SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Wednesday and Mizzou Basketball will travel to Norman, Okla., to face the Oklahoma Sooners on Dec. 5 (Friday).
Game time and television information will be announced by ESPN and the league office at a later date. ESPN will provide exclusive coverage of all 10 games across its networks (ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU).
Missouri, which will enter its first season under the direction of new Head Coach Kim Anderson, is 1-0 all-time in the Challenge series with the Big 12, earning an 80-71 win over West Virginia last season at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers are also 4-1 all-time in Challenge games dating back to the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series from 2007-2010.
"The ability to showcase SEC basketball in this kind of inter-conference competition makes this a unique and exciting event for our coaches, student-athletes and fans," SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said.
