(Alan Saunders/Pittsburgh Sports Now)

CBS Sports and College Hoops Today reporter Jon Rothstein is reporting that Northern Iowa is set to replace Texas A&M in the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic field and will take on West Virginia to open the tournament.

The preseason No. 15 Mountaineers will now open their 2020-2021 season against Northern Iowa rather than the Aggies in the Crossover Classic on Nov. 25 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
