Another non-conference opponent is [nearly] on the books for the 2020-21 season, as Jon Rothstein has noted that Villanova is set to play Virginia at Madison Square Garden next season.

On Thursday, the Villanova Athletic Department confirmed that the game will be played on December 19th.

The two programs have accounted for three of the last four National Championships and played a home & home across the 2016 and 2017 [recap] seasons, with each team winning at their home venue.

All-time, the Wildcats are 3-5 against the Cavaliers with the two other victories coming in 2004 and 1988.

Villanova’s non-conference for the 2020-21 season is also set to include a trip to Austin to play Texas, and two of Michigan, NC State, or Baylor in the Empire Classic.
