Creighton will play at Kansas on Dec. 3 as part of the Big East-Big 12 Battle. Though the matchup was reported last month, the official date was announced Wednesday.

The Big East had an 8-2 edge over the Big 12 in 2019, the first year of the challenge — the Bluejays defeated Oklahoma 83-73 and Villanova earned a 56-55 win over Kansas.

Creighton claimed a share of the Big East regular-season title for the first time in program history last season, finishing 24-7 with a 13-5 record in conference play. The Jayhawks finished 28-3 last year and won the Big 12 regular-season title with a 17-1 record.

Creighton is 6-9 all time against Kansas, with the most recent matchup March 14, 1974 — a 55-54 win for the Jayhawks.
