    Big 12 - SEC Football Challenge?

    This was buried at the bottom of an older article on ESPN.com. I didn't recall it being discussed, but It may have been buried in all the off topic posts here as of late.

    Link


    Rumblings have been heard during recent months about the Big 12 testing the waters on a potential "challenge series" for football. It would be tailored along the lines of the one developed for Pac-10 basketball. The idea would be to match most, if not all, 12 teams from the conference against a similarly configured conference like the ACC or SEC.
    Stoops has championed the idea of such a series several times in recent seasons. And Leach said that he was intrigued by the concept, although he hasn't heard anything specific about it.
    "I think it sounds like a pretty good idea," Leach said. "The key thing would be to involve everybody."

    Which would be awesome. Playing a game we can win against an SEC team would be great.

    A TV deal for that may make up for the lost home game every other year. That is assuming they will divide it equally and not just give it to the big featured teams.

    So you're saying that we need to keep the home game, then. Why help that Texas wallet?

    It's rather generous of you to buy us all drinks, pay for our hotels and arrange the dancing ladies for the postgame celebration party.

    I'm in then! Start lobbying the Big 12 and SEC now.

    Yeah, but like someone already said, we'd be lucky if we got to go to Lexington (Kentucky) or Fayetteville (Arkansas) - more than likely we end up in Nashville (Vandy), Starkville (Miss St), or Oxford (Ole Miss)...

    I still think the Arkansas ISU matchup in Arrowhead would be sweet.
