The sixth Women's Basketball Challenge between the Big 12 and Southeastern Conferences will open Wednesday, Dec. 4.

The Big 12/SEC Challenge will feature 10 squads from the SEC against every team from the Big 12. This is the fourth season in which 10 games will be played. The format consists of five home games on campus sites for each conference.

This year's challenge includes four games that will feature at least one ranked opponent in either the Associated Press or USA TODAY Sports' Coaches poll.

The inaugural challenge was held in 2014 in Little Rock, Arkansas and featured a top-5 showdown with No. 3 Texas squaring off against No. 4 Texas A&M. Oklahoma and Arkansas, who were both receiving votes, played in the second game. The conferences split the Challenge with the two games decided by a total of nine points.

The 2015 version was contested in Oklahoma City with the opponents reversed as No. 5 Texas played Arkansas while No. 17 Oklahoma competed against No. 18 Texas A&M. Each league again claimed a win.

In 2016, the SEC edged the Big 12, 6-4, in the first 10-game slate. The last two seasons, both conferences split the Challenge with a 5-5 mark.
