Sources: SEC teams not involved in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge will play home-and-home series' starting in 19-20 against select teams from the American Conference. The goal of the alliance between the leagues is create more Quad 1 and 2 opportunities.




not a bad move for the aac.

This is what should have been happening all along.

Instead of each school needing to schedule the entire out of conference season, the AAC needs to be supporting and setting these programs up with the best opportunities to compete with other top conferences.

Should be one game each season with Big 10, SEC, ACC, Big 12. I'd say Big East too, but that might mess up the crosstown. I may even be willing to bypass that if we had chances with teams from all of those conferences each season.

Tournaments are great but having a built in process makes so much more sense.

Iím concerned that we will be left out on stuff like this until Brannen proves the program is in good hands.


I expect to see the same kinda thing happen when it comes to prime time games.

That said we didnít exactly have room on our schedule for another high level game

scheduling ability had to play some part. smu over us or uconn can't be the exposure the league wants.


but this being for 2 years blows.
