As part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge, the game time for Kentucky-Baylor on Friday, Dec. 6 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, has been set for 10 p.m. ET on ESPN, the university announced Tuesday in a press release.

Kentucky-Baylor will mark one of 10 contests in the Big 12/SEC Challenge for the 2013 season.

UK and Baylor met in the Elite Eight of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, a game Kentucky won 82-70 and then went on to win its eighth national title. Baylor defeated UK 64-55 last season in Rupp Arena.

Kentucky leads the all-time series with a 7-1 mark, including a 3-0 record in games played on neutral courts.

The game will be played as the second half of a doubleheader, as the women’s teams from Kentucky and Baylor will meet prior to the men’s tip. It will mark the second consecutive year the women’s teams have faced off as well.

Public sale for tickets to the Baylor-Kentucky doubleheader in AT&T Stadium begins Friday, Sept. 20 at 11 a.m. ET.
