Villanova is beefing up its non-conference schedule with a neutral site game in 2015 against a Big 12 power. The Wildcats will be heading to Hawaii on December 7th to meet up with the Oklahoma Sooners. The news comes via a report from CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, who has become something of an expert on Villanova's unannounced 2015-16 schedule this week.

The game is going to honor the 74th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack that brought the United States into World War II. It isn't clear where the site of the game will be, but it is expected to be conducted with a similar feel to previous college basketball games held at Military sites for the benefit of the troops.

Oklahoma lost to Michigan State -- a Final Four team -- in the 2015 Sweet 16 and will return four starters from that team. The Sooners should be ranked highly entering next season.
