Last year Villanova and Syracuse inked a deal that would feature a "Home & Home" between the two schools maintaining the traditional Big East rivalry. Shortly afterwards rumors snuck out that it would be a "One, One, & One" series with the game in the third year to be played at Madison Square Garden.
According to Jon Rothstein, the date for the Villanova-hosted tilt has been set; December 20th.
Villanova will host Syracuse on Saturday 12/20/14 at the Wells Fargo Center, source told @CBSSports. 2nd year of 3-year series. 2015 at MSG.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 9, 2014
As expected, the game will be held at Villanova's South Philly Lair- the Wells Fargo Center. However, the timing of the game is less than desirable as Final Exams for the Fall 2014 semester conclude on December 19th meaning a majority of students will be en route to their homes for the holidays.
The Wildcats lost at the Carrier Dome to the ACC foes last December.
