We discuss a random matrix theory that was originally constructed to describe two-color QCD at low density in the phase with a nonzero chiral condensate. With a particular choice of a parameter, the same random matrix theory also describes the high-density phase of two-color QCD. In this phase a BCS superfluid of diquark pairs is formed, and the pattern of chiral symmetry breaking is very different from that at low density. Analytical results for the spectral density obtained from this random matrix theory allow for the extraction of the BCS gap from lattice data.
