Loyola (Chicago) will receive a pair of high-quality matchups in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic in December. The Ramblers will face Texas Tech on Dec. 22 and then battle either Houston or Boise State the following night on Fox Sports 1.
The Ramblers will also play on-campus games against two of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Southern Utah, Abilene Christian and South Carolina State.
“I am very excited for us to be playing in such a high-level tournament during our non-conference season,” Loyola head coach Porter Moser said. “In addition to getting two games in front of our own fans, we will get the opportunity to play two very good teams out in Las Vegas prior to starting our Missouri Valley Conference schedule.”
