Starting on Thursday and ending on Saturday, the Big East and the SEC will do battle. Four games will be played on Thursday with four more on Friday and Saturday. This series started in 2007. From 2007 until this year, the series was always four games. ESPN talked both conferences into a 12-game slate over three days.
Each conference has won eight games apiece in the series. Kentucky and Tennessee are the only teams to win two games in the series with Auburn losing twice. Every Big East squad has only played one time.
The games used to be played at neutral sites. No longer each conference will host six games apiece.
