Officials at Texas and LSU would not confirm an ESPN report that the two schools will meet in a men’s basketball game on Nov. 8 at American Airlines Center in Dallas.
ESPN reported that four games will be played a AAC that day as a tip-off event for the season. The other games are Baylor vs. Colorado, SMU vs. TCU and Alabama vs. Oklahoma.
A Texas official said he could not confirm the game from that end. LSU officials said the same to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Texas does have one opening left on its schedule for a game that week.
