ST. LOUIS -- Connecticut has beaten Louisville twice this season by an average of 33.5 points. On Jan. 26, the Huskies won 93-65 in Storrs, Conn. UConn then beat Louisville 75-36 on March 10 in the Big East tournament championship game in Hartford, Conn. Both teams were playing their third game in as many days, but the Cardinals also had played a double-overtime contest against Rutgers two days earlier.

With Tuesday's national championship game (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET) marking their third meeting, we had to ask, "Will this matchup be any different from the past two?" Can the Cardinals pull off one of the greatest upsets, or will the Huskies wrap up their third perfect season in program history?
