Game Time Announced For WVU’s Basketball Game At Tennessee
Times and ESPN networks have been announced for the 2019 SEC/Big 12 Men’s Basketball Challenge. West Virginia’s battle with Tennessee in Knoxville will tip off at 4:00 p.m. ET and will be televised by either ESPN or ESPN2.
The sixth annual event will consist of 10 games played on Saturday, January 26, as every Big 12 member faces 10 squads from the Southeastern Conference.
Half of the contests will showcase matchups in which both teams played in the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship while nine will feature at least one team that advanced to postseason tournaments.
This will mark the fourth consecutive year for all matchups to be played in one day. ESPN, EPSN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise the contests with ESPN’s College GameDay originating from one of the sites.
Big 12 teams are 29-21 (.580) in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. In the first four years of the event, the Challenge trophy remained in the Big 12 office. The Big 12 won it the first three seasons and the leagues split the 10 games in 2017 (in case of a tie, the trophy stays with the conference that won it the previous season). The SEC won the fifth season of the Challenge.
