Kentucky. Florida. Georgetown.

Iowa State. Texas. K-State.

The Kansas basketball schedule is set for the 2014-15 season after the Big 12 released its full conference slate on Thursday for the upcoming year. The Jayhawks’ nonconference schedule was previously released in May.

The nonconference slate is packed with power matchups, including an early-season date with Kentucky at the Champions Classic on Nov. 18 in Indianapolis. The Jayhawk will also play host to Florida in the SEC-Big 12 Challenge and travel to Georgetown and Temple. The regular-season opener is Nov. 14 against UC Santa Barbara at Allen Fieldhouse.

The opening weeks of the Big 12 schedule appear to be manageable. Kansas will start the Big 12 season at Baylor on Jan. 7, beginning an opening five-game stretch that features home games against Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, a road trip to Iowa State, and a return to Allen Fieldhouse to face Oklahoma.

Other early highlights: Kansas faces potential Big 12 contender Texas in a nationally televised CBS game on Saturday, Jan. 24 in Austin. Kansas State, meanwhile, is set to come to Lawrence on Jan. 31.
