Posted: Sep 6, 2018 3:12 PM

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) - The Ole Miss men's basketball team will battle the Iowa State Cyclones at 11 a.m. CT, Jan. 26, 2019, as part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. ESPN announced start times for all 10 games of the sixth annual competition Thursday afternoon.

The non-conference matchup will appear on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. A specific television designation will be announced at a later date. Four of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge's 10 games will be televised on ESPN, four on ESPN2 and two games will air on ESPNU. All 10 games will also be available on the ESPN app.

ESPN's College GameDay Covered by State Farm – the Saturday roadshow that discusses the top storylines of the college basketball season – will originate from one of the Challenge games.

All 10 of the Big 12's teams and 10 of the SEC's 14 member institutions will participate in this year's event. Each of the 10 SEC teams that participated in the 2018 Challenge will be a part of the 2019 event.

The SEC is coming off a 6-4 win in the Big 12/SEC Challenge after a 5-5 tie in 2017. This will be the fourth year that a bye in the league schedule for participating teams was created to accommodate the single-day format. The four SEC teams not participating will play each other in conference games the same day.

Ole Miss and Iowa State have met just once over the past 108 seasons of Rebel Basketball. The Cyclones and Rebels squared off in Hawaii on Dec. 23, 2000 with Iowa State emerging victorious 73-68. It was one of only eight losses all season for Ole Miss as the Rebels went on to capture the SEC Western Division title before advancing to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.

Tipoff times and television designations for the remainder of the Rebels' schedule will be released at a later date.
