26th Annual Benefit Helping to Eradicate Cancer Will See First Time Matchup Between Two Prominent Football Schools
The doubleheader takes place on Tuesday, December 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York and will be televised on ESPN (streamed also on the ESPN app).
The matchups include:
7 p.m. Eastern, Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma–first time these schools have met on the hardwood.
Around 9:30 p.m., West Virginia vs. Florida–last met in February 2016 during the Big 12/SEC Challenge when the Gators upended the Mountaineers on that particular Saturday.
According to the ESPN Events press release, this will be the 12th Annual V Week For Cancer Research–which stretches across platform, linear and streaming such as SportsCenter, Wingo & Golic, and other ESPN Radio shows.
All four schools were hit hard by either graduation or early departures to the NBA Draft. Expect all four schools to bring their defense to make up for a few of the teams’ lack of instant scoring–case in point, the losses of Matt Farrell and Bonzie Colson for Notre Dame and freshman sensation Trae Young from Oklahoma.
