This year’s All-College Classic basketball game in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma will feature the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas A&M Aggies. This is obviously the first time these two teams have met since the Aggies joined the SEC back during the Summer.
The classic’s first game was in 1935, out-dating even the NCAA when it comes to NCAA tournaments being played, so it makes it the oldest basketball tournament still being played today. This is the first year that the Oklahoma State Cowboys will actually not play in the classic, which the tournament stated that they were changing formats. It looks like that format ended up being just a one game event. So now it just sits as an exhibition game. And not even a tournament. You follow? It took me a minute, too.
The Aggies are 7-1 on the season while the Sooners are sitting at 6-2. The game is scheduled for Saturday, December 15th at 1:00 CST and is being played at Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
