No matter the outcome, college basketball fans will get to see a bit of history when the Virginia Cavaliers and the Texas Tech Red Raiders face off during Monday’s men’s national championship game.

This year marks the first time Texas Tech’s men’s basketball team has ever advanced past the Elite Eight, though the Lady Raiders won the women’s basketball title in 1993. Virginia’s men’s team had made it to the Final Four twice before — losing to North Carolina at the Spectrum in Philadelphia in 1981 and to Houston (and All-American center Akeem Olajuwon) in 1984.
