The WVU men's basketball team will be taking on the Texas A&M Aggies in next season's Big 12/SEC Challenge.

According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, the Mountaineers will host the Aggies in Morgantown. The date and time has yet to be determined.

Last season's Big 12/SEC Challenge went horribly for the Mountaineers, as they were dominated in Gainesville by the Florida Gators 88-71.

Other matchups, per Rothstein:

  • Kansas @ Kentucky
  • Baylor @ Ole Miss
  • Texas @ Georgia
  • Iowa State @ Vanderbilt
  • Kansas State @ Tennessee
  • Florida @ Oklahoma
  • Auburn @ TCU
  • Arkansas @ Oklahoma State
  • LSU @ Texas Tech

West Virginia has faced Texas A&M only once in the school's history, defeating the Aggies 73-66 on a neutral site during the 2009-10 Final Four season. Texas A&M bolted the Big 12 one season before the Mountaineers came on board.

Mike Rutherford of SB Nation has A&M in the "next five in" of his super early preseason rankings.
