The Villanova Wildcats have been coming to the Dome almost every year (thanks, DePaul) since 1980. This will be their final time as a rival in the Big East. Pretty soon, both schools will be playing in other conferences. Until then, we still get to beat each other up.

Get your preview info here before you watch the game on Time Warner Sports Cable, SNY, 6 ABC in Philly, ESPN3 or some other Big East Network affiliate.

And something tells me Scott Shafer will be stopping by to let all you hard-nosed people know that when we get to #TheDamnACC, we're locking the place and kicking some ass.
