RVING, Texas – The Iowa State men’s basketball team will play host to Auburn on Dec. 2, 2013 in the first season of the Big 12/SEC Challenge, announced today by the Big 12 Conference.

The majority of the games are scheduled for December 2-6. ESPN will provide exclusive coverage of all 10 games on its networks. Additional components of the challenge, including start times and television broadcast information, will be announced at a later date.

This will be the first challenge for Big 12 men’s basketball since a four-year series between the Conference and the Pac-10 from 2017-10. ISU went 2-2 in the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series (Oregon State, 2-0; California, 0-2).
