LSU will play at West Virginia on December 4 as part of the 2014 SEC/Big 12 Challenge, the SEC office announced Wednesday afternoon.

The Tigers, which finished 20-14 while advancing to the second round of the NIT this past season, were not a part of the inaugural SEC/Big 12 Challenge in 2013.

The Mountaineers, under head coach Bob Huggins, slumped to 17-16 a season ago, falling at Georgetown in the first round of the NIT.

In total there are 10 games in the 2014 Challenge. Here is the complete schedule (times/TV still to be determined).

Auburn at Texas Tech - Wed., Dec. 3

Arkansas at Iowa State - Thurs., Dec. 4

LSU at West Virginia - Thurs., Dec. 4

Baylor at Vanderbilt - Thurs., Dec. 4

TCU at Ole Miss - Thurs., Dec. 4

Florida at Kansas - Fri., Dec. 5

Texas at Kentucky - Fri., Dec. 5

Missouri at Oklahoma - Fri., Dec. 5

Oklahoma State at South Carolina - Sat., Dec. 6

Kansas State at Tennessee - Sat., Dec. 6

The Big 12 prevailed in last year's debut Challenge, 7-3, with Alabama, Missouri and Florida providing the SEC's only victories (over Texas Tech, West Virginia and Kansas, respectively).

LSU's other non-conference games currently on the books include home dates with Massachusetts and Texas Tech, a road contest and UAB and a trip to the Virgin Islands for the Paradise Jam, a tournament field which includes Clemson, Nevada and Seton Hall.

It is believed the Tigers, entering year three under head coach Johnny Jones, are seeking an additional non-conference game or two as part of home-and-home deals.
