Last week there was speculation that Kentucky would face Cincinnati in this year’s SEC-Big East Challenge. Now that’s changed.
ESPN’s Andy Katz reports today that “multiple sources” have told him that “the highest-profile game that could occur is Kentucky at Georgetown.”
He also speculated on some of the other matchups, saying he wouldn’t be surprised to see Louisville at Florida, Marquette at Missouri and Tennessee at Notre Dame. ”But those last four appear to be more speculation at this point,” he wrote.
The Big East is still trying to decide whether it will line up two more of its teams for the challenge this year, as the SEC has expanded to 14 teams with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M. If the Big East does not include two more squads, two SEC teams won’t be able to take part in this year’s challenge.
