This is a big game for the Cowboys because it is a great opportunity against a Power 5 opponent. This game could also be looked at as a great chance for the Cowboys to lose which apparently helps tournament chances. Plus, it is an opportunity for Coach Boynton to go up against his alma mater, and his mentor in Frank Martin.
The teams split their only two meetings, so this season is the rubber match. In Big 12/SEC games, the Cowboys are 3-2 overall.
Here is how the rest of the Big 12/SEC Challenge matchups shook out:
