The national championship game is set to rematch for a non-conference game this December. Butler will face Duke on December 4th at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Coach K has said his team is ready for a challange against their contenders just a month ago. The game will be televised on ESPN, and with Duke and Butler, at that time, we could be seeing a top 5 matchup, maybe even a #1 vs #2.
