Omaha to take on Seattle and UT Rio Grande Valley in Summit League/WAC Challenge over next two years

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Summit League and Western Athletic Conference officials announced Wednesday the matchups and dates for the first year of The Summit League/WAC Challenge in men’s basketball.

The Challenge features head-to-head competition between all nine league teams. Matchups were set based upon factors including the previous year’s achievements, records and RPI rankings, as well as projected rankings in the upcoming season. Those teams with home games in 2018 will play on the road in 2019 and vice versa. In addition, teams will not face the same opponent in back-to-back years.

“We developed this series to assist both of our memberships with non-conference scheduling,” Summit League Commissioner Tom Douple said. “Over a two-year period, this partnership will guarantee our programs a quality home and road opponent that will be exciting for our fans to follow.”
