Two of college basketball’s biggest powers—Kansas and Villanova—have an upcoming home-and-home series during the next two seasons.
The Jayhawks and Wildcats have met six times in the programs’ history, and will add two more games to that ledger over the next two years.
The series begins with a mid-December match-up in Kansas next winter, and at Villanova in 2019.
They announced the home-and-home series this morning:

Each team has won three of the six meetings, with the first coming in 1968, and the most recent coming in the 2016 NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. Villanova won that match-up 64-59 en route to a national championship.
