The matchup between two of college basketball’s bluest blue-bloods Saturday night headlines the Big 12-SEC Challenge, a series of intriguing matchups that includes Texas A&M-Iowa State and Oklahoma-LSU.
The game between the fourth-ranked Jayhawks and No. 20 Wildcats, the two winningest programs in Division I history, is easily the highlight of the day. They’ve combined for more than 4,300 victories, 104 league titles, 31 trips to the Final Four and 13 national championships.
”You can remove the 16,000 people and play shirts and skins,” Jayhawks coach Bill Self said, ”and it’s still Kansas and Kentucky. They’re still going to be fired up to play.”
