Palestra to Host College GameDay for Big 5 Matchup; Villanova Not Included

Temple and LaSalle will kick off College GameDay's schedule on January 18th, 2014 at the Palestra.

On January 18th, 2014, ESPN's College GameDay crew of Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Digger Phelps, and Jalen Rose will be stationed in Philadelphia, PA at the historic Palestra.  Unfortunately for the Nova Nation, Villanova will not be playing as the showcase game of the day, rather the Temple Owls will square off against the LaSalle Explorers at noon.  It will actually be a doubleheader for College GameDay on that Saturday; after the Temple-LaSalle contest, they will travel to Connecticut for UConn's game against the defending champion Louisville Cardinals.  Penn hosts St. Joseph's that night as well, so it will be a busy day for Philly Big 5 hoops.  The schedule for ESPN's College GameDay for this season is below:

  • January 18: Temple at La Salle and Louisville at Connecticut
  • January 25: Michigan at Michigan State
  • February 1: Duke at Syracuse
  • February 8: Gonzaga at Memphis
  • February 15: Florida at Kentucky
  • February 22: Arizona at Colorado or UCLA at Stanford
  • March 1: Kansas at Oklahoma State
  • March 8: North Carolina at Duke
