    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The matchups for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge are set for Jan. 30, with Auburn/Baylor, Texas/Kentucky and Kansas/Tennessee among the highlights.

    The 2021 slate of SEC/Big 12 Challenge games will mark the eighth season of the annual event between the SEC and the Big 12 and the sixth straight in which all 10 games of the challenge will be played on the same day. The four SEC teams not participating will play each other in conference games the same day.
     
    Ten of the SEC’s 14 teams will participate in the 2021 challenge against all 10 of the Big 12’s institutions, with each conference hosting five games apiece.
     
    All 10 games will air across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU and will be available on the ESPN app. In addition to game times, network designations will be announced later for the challenge.
     
    The challenge has been as good as advertised in recent years. In 2020, the two conferences went 5-5 in the challenge, and over the last four seasons, the leagues are 20-20 vs. one another.
