Big 12 reunion is on tap when No. 3 Texas A&M hosts No. 6 Nebraska in NCAA 2nd round Monday

Texas A&M has moved on to the Southeastern Conference, and Nebraska is a part of the Big 10.

The Aggies and Cornhuskers will hold a Big 12 reunion Monday night when the former conference foes meet in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Nebraska and A&M competed against each other for years in the Big 12 before the Cornhuskers made the jump to the Big 10 in 2011. The Aggies left the conference for the SEC this season.

No. 3 Texas A&M beat Wichita State in the first round and sixth-seeded Nebraska rallied to knock off Chattanooga.

The Aggies won the national title in 2011, and advanced to the round of 16 last season. Nebraska is looking to get there for first time since 2010.
