The Sunday BIG EAST schedule includes three afternoon games that some can enjoy as Super Bowl appetizers.
In the BIG EAST Network Game of the Week, Providence plays at Villanova at noon ET. The two teams met just two weeks ago in Providence with the Friars rallying in the second half for a 69-66 victory. The Wildcats are 10-1 at home this season.
At 2 p.m., Marquette plays at Louisville on ESPN. The Golden Eagles assumed first place in the BIG EAST when Syracuse lost at Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Cardinals are also 10-1 at home this year.
Also at 2 p.m., Connecticut hosts USF. The Huskies are coming off an overtime win at Providence on Thursday while the Bulls are aiming for their first road victory in league play.
