Texas will meet Texas A&M and Oklahoma will face Arkansas in a women’s basketball doubleheader Dec. 21 that marks the inaugural edition of a challenge event formed by the Southeastern Conference and Big 12.

The event will span at least two years and will have two teams from each league participating.

The Dec. 21 doubleheader will take place in North Little Rock, Ark. The four schools will meet again the following year, with Texas facing Arkansas and Texas A&M battling Oklahoma on Dec. 20, 2015, in Oklahoma City.

These doubleheaders are designed to help promote the 2015 SEC women’s basketball tournament that will take place in North Little Rock and the 2016 Big 12 tournament that is scheduled for Oklahoma City
