When Oklahoma State men’s basketball released their non-conference schedule for the 2019-2020 season, it was short one game; the opponent for the seventh annual Big 12 / SEC Challenge.
According to a report from Jon Rothestein of CBS Sports, we now know who the Cowboys will face; former conference foe Texas A&M.

Similar to the Cowboys, the Aggies are in looking to rebuild after a disappointing 2018-2019 campaign. Last year A&M went 14-18, including 6-12 in SEC play, which led to the firing of Head Coach Billy Kennedy. They hired Buzz Williams away from Virginia Tech to replace him.
This will be the first time the two teams have faced off in the conference showdown between the Big 12 and SEC. OSU has previously gone 4-2 in the competition, including a 74-40 win over South Carolina last year in Gallagher-Iba Arena. A&M is 2-3 in the rivalry series, after a 65-53 win over Kansas State last year.
Oklahoma State leads the all-time series against A&M 10-7. The two teams last faced off in 2017 in the opening round of the Legends Classic in Brooklyn, New York. The Aggies won that match-up 72-55.
The Cowboys and Aggies will face off in Reed Arena in College Station on Saturday, January 25th.
