The SEC/Big 12 Challenge for Kentucky has been set. Kentucky will host Texas at Rupp Arena on January 30, 2021 time and TV channel to be released later.
Kentucky is 4-3 in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge since it started in 2013-2014, which wasn’t the best regular season in Kentucky history as they lost the first game to Baylor, they defeated Texas, went 1-2 to the Jayhawks, but had a thriller overtime win over Texas Tech last season. Kentucky’s entire non-conference schedule will be released soon. Be on the lookout for it on Twitter and Facebook.
The first matchup between Kentucky and Texas was December 1993 in the Maui Invitational, Kentucky won 86-61. Their last matchup was December 5, 2014 in the 2nd season of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge, Kentucky won that game 63-51 behind the 21 points and 12 rebounds from Willie Cauley-Stein. This will mark the third matchup between these two teams.
