One of the main attractions of the new Big East was the television deal the conference made with Fox. Along with being a prominent high-major program, the result has been that, each of Villanova's 31 regular season games has been on national television this season.
Sure, the USC game was difficult to track down for most on AXS, and Lafayette was a challenge on Fox Sports 2, but the balance of the games were televised on the widely found channels- CBS Sports Network, NBCSports, FSN, CBS, and, most frequently, Fox Sports 1. The latter will show 20 Wildcat games through the regular season plus each game of the Big East Tournament.
This greater national visibility has helped 'Nova's reach in to AP Pollsters' living room as well as Nova Nation outside of the tri-state area.
The downside is that FS1 games, in their infancy, have become formulaic and commical to watch. One can sense what will be shown or said next, fans wait for a wrong graphic, and announcers still have troubles annunciating Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu's names.
So why not have some fun with that? We introduce Version 1 of Villanova Basketball TV Bingo.
