Gonzaga will host Southern Methodist University as part of ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon, according to a tweet sent out by the SMU basketball program. 

The game will take place November 17th in the McCarthey Athletic Center. The series was previously mentioned on Twitter by the Mustangs' Athletic Director, Rick Hart. Gonzaga will return the favor with a trip to Dallas the following season.

Their November showdown - which will likely feature two teams ranked in the presason Top-25 - will be the programs' first meeting. Larry Brown's team lost to Minnesota in the 2014 WNIT Championship.

Gonzaga has not made any official announcement about the game, and likely will not until their entire non-conference schedule is complete.
