Georgia Tech’s opponent for the SEC/ACC challenge is set.

The Yellow Jackets will travel to Oklahoma on Dec. 3, Tech announced Wednesday. The Sooners, who join the SEC in July, went 20-12 last season and 8-10 in the Big 12 Conference. They were led in scoring by guard Javian McCollum (13.3 ppg), who transferred to Tech this offseason.

Tech is 2-2 all-time against Oklahoma, having last played against the Sooners in a 1995 preseason National Invitation Tournament game at the Georgia Dome. The Jackets won that matchup 83-72.

A year earlier, Tech bested Oklahoma 89-85 in the Rainbow Classic in Honolulu. The Jackets’ only trips to Norman, Oklahoma, came in 1985 and 1982, and both were losses.

Oklahoma joins Cincinnati, Georgia and Northwestern (in Milwaukee) as part of Tech’s nonconference schedule for the next season.
