Mondays, as always, will be big for Kansas University's men's basketball team this coming season.

For the ninth straight year, the Jayhawks will make four appearances on ESPN’s Big Monday, as announced by the Big 12 Conference.

KU’s first two ESPN Big Monday games will be featured inside Allen Fieldhouse: Jan. 19 vs. Oklahoma and Feb. 2 vs. Iowa State. The Jayhawks will then hit the road for its final two matchups: Feb. 16 at West Virginia and Feb. 23 at Kansas State.

In the Big 12 era, Kansas and Oklahoma have faced each other on ESPN's Big Monday eight times, while the Jayhawks have played Kansas State and Iowa State six times each. KU and West Virginia will be meeting for the second time on ESPN Big Monday.

Since the inception of the Big 12 in 1996-97, KU is 52-17 all-time on ESPN’s Big Monday (29-1 at home, 23-16 on the road), including 33-9 under coach Bill Self. Additionally, KU has won 22 consecutive Big Monday games in Allen Fieldhouse, which includes an 18-0 mark under Self.
