LAS VEGAS (AP) — Washington and Texas will become the first teams in any major U.S. sport to play a regular season game in China when they meet in 2015.

The non-conference game is set for Nov. 14, 2015, in Shanghai.

The international showdown is part of the Pac-12's Globalization Initiative.

Since the initiative was formed in 2011, the conference has sent two men's and one women's basketball team, a women's all-star volleyball team, and a delegation of men's basketball coaches to China for competitive exhibitions and clinics.
