-BAYLOR AT IOWA STATE (Big Twelve). It’s a conference game between two teams that appear to be protected seeds. Iowa State has been tough at home, and overall is more tested than Baylor.

-GEORGIA TECH AT DUKE (ACC). Duke looks to rebound after losing their conference opener at ND.

-SAINT LOUIS AT RHODE ISLAND (Atlantic Ten). I like SLU’s team and they have a good record, but they don’t have any really good wins. They’re still in good shape, but they don’t have the widest margin for error now that they’re in to league play.

-TENNESSEE AT LSU (SEC). Both of these teams have a lot of work to do, so there should be a sense of urgency to this game.

-KANSAS STATE AT TCU (Big Twelve). TCU is a respectable 9-4, but they haven’t been playing this caliber of team.

-SYRACUSE AT VIRGINIA TECH (ACC). I think Syracuse is the class of the ACC and shouldn’t have too much trouble picking up the road win tonight.

-OHIO STATE AT MCIHIGAN STATE (Big Ten). Ohio State is unbeaten and has looked good, but this is by far their biggest test of the year. If they can get the win, it’s a statement that they’re a #1 seed caliber team.

-CINCINNATI AT HOUSTON (AAC). Cincinnati has had a pretty good year, and is in good shape at 13-2 overall. Houston is coming off a big win against UConn, but I’m still thinking that was more of a fluke than anything else.

-NC STATE AT NOTRE DAME (ACC), Despite their big win against Duke, I still think Notre Dame has a lot of work to do. Same with NC State.

-CREIGHTON AT DEPAUL (Big East). Creighton needs to hold serve and take care of business in games like this.
