While the 2018 basketball schedule is still getting put together for the Ohio State Buckeyes, they have locked-in another contest—but this time for 2019.

Kentucky, UCLA, North Carolina and OSU are circling the wagons again for another iteration of the CBS Sports Classic. On Dec. 21, 2019, the sixth edition of the Classic will take in Las Vegas, with the Buckeyes getting the Wildcats and the Tar Heels getting the Bruins.

If Las Vegas seemed like a familiar destination for the CBS Sports Classic, you’re right! In 2016, T-Mobile Arena was the home for the December showcase of basketball prowess.

If these matchups are interesting you, and you’re looking for tickets, then you’ll have to wait. Tickets aren’t be sold right now, and will be available at a later date.

Since 2014, the four programs have been part of the first six editions of this early season, meeting of the blue bloods. The difference of the CBS Sports Classic compared to other showcase is that it isn’t in one location. The United Center in Chicago has hosted the event twice, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn has hosted it once, with the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans being the most recent home.
