2022 Big 12/SEC Challenge: Schedule, game times, TV channels, matchups

Auburn continues to roll in SEC, stays atop Power 36 rankings

The SEC secures the 2022 Big 12/SEC Challenge, winning six games to four. No. 1 Auburn led the winning spree with an 86-68 victory over Oklahoma. Unranked Alabama then made headlines upsetting No. 4 Baylor, 87-78, followed by No. 12 Kentucky's rout of No. 5 Kansas, 80-62.

The Big 12 showed some life at the end of the night with Texas' thrilling win over No. 18 Tennessee, 52-51, but the SEC had already won the tournament before tipoff.

The Big 12 is 48-41 all-time now in this challenge. The Big 12 has won four of the nine completed seasons, with the SEC winning thrice and the two conferences tying two times. Thus far, the best result was the Big 12 going 7-3 in both 2013-14 and 2015-16.

Even with the loss on Saturday, Baylor has the best record in the event at 7-2. Last season, the Bears topped Auburn 84-72 — a little more than two months before the Bears made program history and won their first national championship. 

The SEC won the event in 2021, going 5-4 thanks to wins from Texas A&M, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee and Mississippi State. The SEC's win was only the second in the event's history (2017-18 season). All 10 Big 12 teams and 10 of the 14 SEC teams participate in the event.
