The only thing I look forward to more than the start of football season, is when OSU announces the non-conference schedule for Men's Basketball (yeah i know I'm weird).
Today we got one step closer.
Oklahoma State will host Arkansas in next year's Big 12/SEC Challenge, sources told @CBSSports.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) May 23, 2016
According the CBS's Jon Rothstein, The Cowboys will welcome the Razorbacks to Stillwater for the Big 12/SEC Challenge. An official announcement has not yet been released, but Rothstein is reporting all 10 matchups.
This will be the fourth year of the basketball challenge between the two conferences, with the Big 12 winning the previous three years.
OSU is 2-1 in the annual series: 1-1 v.s .South Carolina (W 2013, L 2014*) and 1-0 vs Auburn (W 2015).
While a date has not been announced, this is the now the second game announced for OSU's non-conference schedule. The Cowboys will head to Maryland on December 3rd to face the Terrapins in the second half of a home-and-home (OSU lost the first game in the series 73-64 in Stillwater in 2014.
* I will always remember feeling devastated after the Cowboys got getting blasted by a not-so-great South Carolina team in 2014, only to not care at all after we won Bedlam later that night thanks to the return!
