Villanova will be playing host to ESPN's College GameDay on Saturday February 12th for their home game with the Pittsburgh Panthers.
GameDay will air live on ESPN at 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. ET from the Villanova Campus, meaning this game will be played at The Pavilion.
This is the first time I remember in a long time that we've had a Saturday game against a marquee opponent at The Pavilion. My freshman year when we had a Top-5 matchup against the Oklahoma Sooners is the last one that I can recall. Tickets will be impossible for this, unfortunately.
Jay Wright on the announcement:
"We’re thrilled that ESPN has decided to bring `College GameDay’ to the Villanova campus for the first time. The entire country will get to see the great support we receive from the Nova Nation and our amazing student section. All of us at Villanova are excited about this opportunity."
And I'm clearing my schedule for that weekend...I will find tickets somehow!
