Birmingham, Ala. – ESPN has announced the television network designations and start times for the 10th annual Big 12/SEC Challenge on January 28, 2023.

All 10 of the Big 12’s teams and 10 of the SEC’s 14 institutions will participate in this year’s event.

The SEC won the ninth annual Big 12/SEC Challenge by winning six of the 10 games on January 29, 2022. It is the second year in a row the SEC won the Challenge. The SEC has lost the Challenge just one time in the last six years.

This will be the eighth 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 last eight events have been consolidated to one single day in January. ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU will combine to televise the contests.
