Inaugural BIG EAST-Big 12 Challenge features the Hoyas at the Cowboys

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

As relayed by Casual Hoya last October, the BIG EAST and the Big 12 announced a 4-year basketball series, and according to Jon Rothstein, the Georgetown Hoyas will visit the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the inaugural match-ups:

While we may not have the full details yet, we have some details from a prior press release:

The yet unnamed series will be played in the local markets of the home teams. An equal number of games shall be played in each conference’s home market each year -- five for the Big 12 and five for the BIG EAST. The home school will have the right to determine the venue of its game.

The broadcast rights of the games will be determined by the conference national television rights agreement of the home team. The Big 12 television rights are controlled by ESPN and the BIG EAST’s men’s basketball television rights are controlled by FOX Sports...

The Big 12 and the BIG EAST are already engaged in home-and-home matchups for the upcoming season due to some pre-existing agreements. The games are: Kansas State at Marquette on December 1, Villanova at Kansas on December 15, Creighton at Oklahoma on December 18, and Providence at Texas on December 21. Return dates in these matchups will be included in the 2019 series, the inaugural year of the arrangement. The complete slate for the first year will be announced in spring 2019.
