The Open Thread: UConn vs. Notre Dame

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Two unbeaten teams collide in tonight's national championship game! It doesn't get any better than that.

Alright guys, this is it. This one is for all the marbles, all the bragging rights and all the championships.

Unbeaten UConn (39-0) faces off against archrival Notre Dame (37-0) in the National Championship game, and if the Huskies win, it would be the program's ninth title ever, breaking a tie with Pat Summit's Tennessee Volunteers for the most titles ever.

It would also be UConn's second consecutive title, and paired with the men's championship from last night, it would mark the second time that both the men's and women's teams have won the championship in the same season, a feat UConn also accomplished in 2004.

I don't think I need to emphasize how big this game is. The historical ramifications alone make this one of the biggest games in college basketball history, and if UConn wins, it would solidify the program's place atop the women's college landscape, a perch Tennessee has owned for decades.

Plus, it's Notre Dame, UConn's archrivals and the only team that has proven it can beat the consistently Huskies over the past few years. Beating them would only make it that much sweeter, and by comparison, losing to them would be that much more heartbreaking.

It's time Huskies! Lets show the women the same love we showed the men last night. LETS GO!!!
