Big 12-Big East Battle Extended Through 2024-25
Back in May, an announcement was made that the 2022 Big 12-Big East Battle matchups had been set for the upcoming college basketball season.
Now, on August 1, the two conferences have agreed to extend the annual matchups for another two years, according to a Big 12 press release.
Here is the announcement from the press release.
“The Big 12 and BIG EAST Conferences have announced a two-year extension to the Big 12-BIG EAST Battle, their men’s basketball non-conference scheduling alliance which has been in effect since 2019-20. The extension will include competition in November and December during each of the 2023-24 and 2024-25 seasons.
“With each conference adding member schools since the start of the original agreement, The Battle will increase from 10 to 11 matchups between the conferences during the two extension years. The Big 12 will host six games in 2023-24, and the BIG EAST will host six contests in 2024-2025.
“The Battle matchups will continue to be jointly determined by the two conferences, with the home team choosing the venue of its game. Broadcast arrangements for the contests will be determined by the national television rights holder of the home team, which is ESPN for the Big 12 and FOX Sports for the BIG EAST.”
All 10 teams from the Big 12, and 10 of the 11 in the Big East (excluding DePaul) will play in late November – early December with five of the games being hosted in Big 12 arenas and the other five being played in Big East country in 2022.
Here are the matchups for the 2022 season.
- Baylor at Marquette (11/29)
- Providence at TCU (11/30)
- Georgetown at Texas Tech (11/30)
- Kansas State at Butler (11/30)
- Oklahoma State at UConn (12/1)
- Seton Hall at Kansas (12/1)
- Creighton at Texas (12/1)
- Oklahoma at Villanova (12/3)

- West Virginia at Xavier (12/4)
Last season the challenge was split 5-5 between the conferences, with Baylor, TCU, West Virginia, Iowa State, and Kansas winning for the Big 12 and Seton Hall, Marquette, Butler, Xavier, and Providence coming out victorious for the Big East.
