This one has been circled on the calendar for a while.

The Villanova Wildcats will head across town to the Liacouras Center to take on the Temple Owls on Wednesday night in what looks to be one of the best Big 5 atmospheres in recent years. As if their #1 ranking wasn't enough motivation for for Temple, the Owls are fighting for their postseason and many projections have them booking an at-large bid with a win over the 'Cats.

Add in the fact that Jalen Brunson, son of former Temple star Rick (drink!), opted for their rival after he was thought to be Temple's to lose, and you have the right ingredients for a special night in Philadelphia.

Game Time, TV Schedule: 7:00pm ET. The game will be aired on ESPN2.

Odds: OddsShark has the line opening at Villanova -9.5.

Radio: All Villanova Men's Basketball games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 WIP. Westwood One will also air coverage of the game - check your local listings, or you can use a radio app such as Tune.in.

    BEVERAGE OF CHOICE

    Bourbon Manhattan

    This really felt like a Jameson night heading in to the day but since I have a personal history of letting the Jameson train get off the rails and I have an early day on Thursday I'm opting for something that will get me just as fired up with a much slower pace.

    I'm going to serve these up tonight as well. You know class it up a bit for that #1 ranking.
