Waiting to see Kansas phenom Andrew Wiggins and Oklahoma State All-American candidate Marcus Smart on the same floor?

You can now starting counting the days.

Oklahoma State will travel to Allen Fieldhouse on Jan. 18 for a nationally televised showdown on CBS, just one of the games unveiled Thursday when the Big 12 released its conference basketball schedule.

The return game in Stillwater will come on Saturday, March 1, an game that could serve as an appealing matchup for ESPN’s “College GameDay” show. If nothing else, Kansas’ plans for an unprecedented 10th straight Big 12 title could hinge on two important games against the talented Cowboys.

On Wednesday, the Big 12 announced that KU would appear four times on ESPN’s “Big Monday” telecasts. Those games, along with the two Oklahoma State contests, should provide plenty of the usual exposure for Bill Self’s young Jayhawks.

KU will play host to in-state rival K-State at 1 p.m. Saturday on Jan. 11, and then travel to Manhattan for a Big 12 Monday contest on Feb. 10.

Here’s KU’s complete basketball schedule, including the Big 12 games announced Wednesday:
