Seventeen ranked teams will play across ESPN networks this week, starting with No. 6 Texas hosting Texas Tech for a Big 12 matchup (Wednesday, Feb. 14, 8 p.m. ET, Longhorn Network). Action continues Thursday, Feb. 15, as Alabama takes on No. 11 Tennessee at 6:30 p.m. on SEC Network, followed by No. 2 Mississippi State at Vanderbilt (8:30 p.m.). A number of matchups will also be available on ACC Network Extra, including No. 5 Notre Dame at Virginia, No. 18 Duke at Syracuse, No. 4 Louisville at Boston College and Clemson at No. 12 Florida State.

Play4Kay on Sunday, Feb. 18, and Monday, Feb. 19, will include a number of matchups on ESPN2 and ESPNU. The annual event raises funds and awareness for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, an organization that has committed itself to women’s cancer research initiatives. In partnership with the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund awards grants that support women’s cancer research across the country each year. Play4Kay brings coaches, players and universities together to celebrate the life of the late NC State head coach Kay Yow, who battled breast cancer.

Big Monday will feature a tripleheader on ESPN2, as No. 12 Florida State faces No. 17 Duke (6 p.m.). Action continues with No. 3 Baylor at No. 6 Texas (8 p.m.) with the final NCAA Selection Committee’s Top 16 seed reveal taking place during halftime of this matchup, and concludes with a Pac 12 matchup between No. 7 UCLA and No. 9 Oregon (10:15 p.m.).
