Missouri and Kansas State will have new opponents in this season’s SEC/Big 12 Challenge Series.

The Tigers will play at Oklahoma, and the Wildcats will visit Tennessee.

All of the games in the second annual series will be played from Dec. 3-6 and be televised on an ESPN channel.

Last year, the Big 12 won seven games with the league splitting the two games between ranked teams. Florida defeated Kansas in Gainsville, Fla., and Baylor beat Kentucky at Arlington, Texas.

Also in the inaugural challenge, Missouri defeated West Virginia in Columbia and Kansas State beat Mississippi in Manhattan.

The leagues previously partnered with other conferences in challenge series. Teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 faced off from 2007-10 and the SEC was part of the SEC-Big East Challenge from 2007-12.
