The two leagues and broadcast partner ESPN announced the arrangement Thursday.
The conferences have met for a pair of doubleheaders at neutral sites each of the past four seasons. The new agreement will match the 12 teams from the Southeastern Conference against 12 teams from the Big East over three days beginning the Thursday after Thanksgiving.
All the games will be played at home campus sites, with each conference hosting six each year.
SEC teams will alternate home and away games each season. The teams from the Big East, which has 16 schools and is expanding to 17 in 2012, have not yet been chosen.

Davis, the No. 1 prospect in the country according to Scout.com, had 13 points and 13 rebounds.
Young's Sam Thompson led all scorers with 20 points.
