UConn not part of Big East-SEC Challenge

ESPN announced the 12 matchups that will be part of the Second Annual SEC/Big East Challenge Friday, and UConn is not in the mix.

The Huskies 2012-13 postseason ban has likely made them a less attractive TV draw.

The games in the challenge will be Nov. 29-Dec. 1 at the participating schools.

The Big East contingent in the Challenge will include Cincinnati, DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, St. John’s, Seton Hall, USF, Syracuse and Villanova.

The 2012 SEC/Big East Challenge includes the following matchups:

Thursday, November 29
Kentucky at Notre Dame
Marquette at Florida
South Carolina at St. John’s
Seton Hall at LSU

Friday, November 30
Syracuse at Arkansas
Tennessee at Georgetown
DePaul at Auburn
Georgia at USF

Saturday, December 1
Alabama at Cincinnati
Villanova at Vanderbilt
Mississippi State at Providence
Rutgers at Mississippi
