Easily the best matchup of the Big 12-SEC Challenge.

ESPN has announced the TV network designations and start times for the fifth annual Big 12-SEC Challenge.

That will feature the West Virginia Mountaineers hosting the Kentucky Wildcats in the late afternoon or primetime. The game will be on ESPN and in the 4:30 p.m. or 7 p.m. timeslot.

That same day, ESPN’s College GameDay will originate from one of the Challenge games. It probably will be in Morgantown.

This will be the third year that a bye in the league schedule for participating teams was created to accommodate the single-day format. The first two years of the challenge were played over several days in November and December, but the 2018 event will once again be consolidated to one day in January.
