Florida basketball will face Kansas State in the 10th annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge, set for Jan. 28, 2023. Start times and network designations will be announced at a later date. The game will either be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU. 

The Southeastern Conference won the ninth annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge by winning six of 10 games on Jan. 29. The Gators are 1-1 in program history against Kansas State, though the upcoming trip will mark UF's first trip to Manhattan, Kansas, to face the Wildcats.

The Gators secured the first meeting, 57-44, over Kansas State back on Dec. 18, 2010, with the Wildcats getting revenge just over two years later on Dec. 22, 2012 with a 67-61 win in Kansas City, Missouri.
