A year after a late-game fight between rivals Cincinnati and Xavier led to multiple suspensions, the two sides will meet on a neutral court, according to a report by the Cincinnati Enquirer's Bill Koch.

The game will be held in U.S. Bank Arena in mid-December and broadcast on ESPN, Koch reported.

After last season's brawl, the schools agreed to move the game to a neutral court for two years and then reevaluate the situation.
