The 2016 Big East slate will again start for Jay Wright's squad on New Year's Eve Day when the Wildcats host Xavier with a noon tip off. However, Fox Sports 1 will celebrate the Big East with their "New Year's Marathon" on January 2nd when Villanova travels to Omaha to take on Creighton at 10p ET.

Additionally, 'Nova will play Providence, St. John's, and Georgetown at the Wells Fargo Center.

Examining the TV schedule that is hidden, the Wildcats' game at Georgetown will be broadcast on CBS with five other games, including the season finale against the Hoyas, to be aired on FOX.
