Schedule set for 2022 Big East-Big 12 Battle

The schedule is out for this year’s Big East-Big 12 Battle, the fourth year of the scheduling alliance between the major power basketball conferences.

Defending national champion Kansas will get to play their game at home this year, while Kansas State will hit the road. KU will host Seton Hall on Dec. 1, the first matchup between the Jayhawks and Pirates since the second round of the 2018 NCAA tournament (which KU won). K-State will also get an NCAA tournament rematch on its schedule this year when the Wildcats visit Butler and historic Hinkle Fieldhouse on Nov. 30. Their only previous meeting was in the 2010 Elite Eight, a Butler victory.
