UC head coach John Brannen announced the news Wednesday in a two-minute video posted on Twitter.

In the video, Brannen explained a number of offers UC made to Xavier. Brannen said the first offer they made was to play at a neutral site in 2020 and then at UC in 2021.

The second offer was to play the Shootout at Cintas Center in 2020 and then at UC in 2021.
