MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State will travel to historic Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Wednesday, November 30 to take on the Butler Bulldogs as part of the fourth edition of the Big 12/BIG EAST Battle, the two conferences announced on Wednesday (May 18).

The 10 matchups were jointly determined by the two conferences and will be played on various campuses starting on Tuesday, November 29 and running through Sunday, December 4. Since Butler is the home team, the game will be broadcast on one of FOX Sports’ platforms. Specific television information and game time will be released later.

This will be just the second meeting between the programs and the first since Butler knocked off K-State, 63-56, in the NCAA West Regional Final in Salt Lake City to advance to the 2010 Final Four. It will be the first-ever visit to venerable Hinkle Fieldhouse, which is one of the oldest college basketball arenas still in use opening in 1928.
