It’s that time again! The SEC Big 12 Challenge is back for 2023, and we’ve explored the full series schedule, and where you can watch each game, as the Big 12 looks to take back the title from the SEC.

After the Southeastern Conference put the Big 12 to the sword in the 2021-22 season with a 6-4 victory, all eyes will be on the Big 12’s 10 universities as they look to take the title back from the Southeastern institutions.

And if you’re planning a couch marathon this weekend, here’s all you need to know about how to watch all 10 games in the SEC v Big 12 Challenge 2023.

Where to watch the SEC Big 12 Challenge 2023

The 2023 SEC v Big 12 Challenge will take place on Saturday, January 28, with the first game starting at 12pm, right through to the final two games at 8pm.

And while it may require you to have multiple screens on the go at the same time, it is technically possible to watch, at least some, of every single game.

Like always with the SEC Big 12 Challenge, all games in the 2023 tournament will be shown on ESPN. The main ESPN channel is set to show five games, with ESPN 2 broadcasting four and ESPN U airing the remaining game.

As ever, half of the games will be hosted by teams in the Big 12, while the other half will be hosted by SEC teams – meaning the fixtures will be spread across the country.

SEC Big 12 Challenge 2023 schedule explored

For those who are able to tune in, the 2023 schedule is jam-packed, leaving viewers with little to no time to collect their thoughts between games.

The 2023 SEC v Big 12 Challenge is as follows:

  • Auburn at West Virginia: ESPN, 12pm ET
  • Alabama at Oklahoma: ESPN, 2pm ET
  • Texas Tech at LSU: ESPN, 2pm
  • Iowa State at Missouri: ESPN U, 2pm ET
  • TCU at Mississippi State: ESPN 2, 4PM ET
  • Arkansas at Baylor: ESPN, 4pm
  • Texas at Tennessee: ESPN, 6pm
  • Florida at Kansas State: ESPN 2, 6pm
  • Kansas at Kentucky: ESPN, 8pm
  • Ole Miss at Oklahoma State: ESPN 2, 8pm

The winner will be determined by whichever group, SEC or the Big 12, wins the most combined games. Though ties are somewhat rare, with just two series ties since it began in 2013, it is possible for the series to end in a draw.

What to expect and names to look out for in 2023

In the nine SEC v Big 12 showdowns we’ve witnessed since the series’ inception, the Big 12 narrowly lead the SEC in terms of total titles with four, compared to the SEC’s three.

That being said, a double-header of SEC series wins has followed on from a tied series in 2019-20, meaning the Big 12 are now without a win over the SEC in four years – a stat they will certainly look to rectify this weekend.

One matchup to keep an eye on this year is the Texas Longhorns at the Tennessee Volunteers, which as Yahoo point out, could have a big impact on where Texas may ultimately end up on the NCAA Tournament bracket.

The likes of Santiago Vescovi, Zakai Zeigler, Josiah Jordan-James and Uros Plavsic, all of whom featured in Texas’ narrow win against Tennessee last year, will be looking to claim back a series win for the Big 12.
