OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss will host Big 12 foe TCU next season, as the matchups for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge were announced Wednesday.
The Rebels will welcome the Horned Frogs to Oxford on Dec. 4 as part of the four-day event. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 10 games of the event with times and specific networks to be determined at a later date. Each of the games will also be available via WatchESPN.
TCU posted a 9-22 overall record and a 0-18 mark in conference play last season under second-year head coach Trent Johnson. The Frogs lose one of their top three scorers off last season's squad, but will add three transfers in Devonta Abron (Arkansas), Chris Washburn (TCU) and Try Zeigler (Pitt) next season.
Ole Miss and TCU have met four times on the hardwood with the Rebels holding a 3-1 advantage, including an 80-69 win at the Paradise Jam Classic in the Virgin Islands in 2011.
