Highlighted Games for Tuesday, Dec 30th

-IOWA AT OHIO STATE (Big Ten).  Iowa has a good win at North Carolina already, but still needs to add to their profile.  Ohio State really doesn’t have a notable win yet and will need to prove themselves in conference.

-VIRGINIA TECH AT WEST VIRGINIA.  Virginia Tech is 8-4, but doesn’t have any wins of note on their profile.  West Virginia is off to an impressive 11-1 start.  This is a rivalry, so it should be a fun one.

-YALE AT SACRED HEART.  At 9-4 with some notable wins, Yale has been the most impressive team in the Ivy League so far.

-ILLINOIS AT MICHIGAN (Big Ten).  Michigan desperately needs to get their season turned around before it’s too late.  Illinois has done well, but is still looking for their first true road win.

-LONG BEACH STATE AT LOUISVILLE.  We keep saying it, but Long Beach has played a brutal schedule and if they can get one of these big wins on the road, it may be enough to land them inside the bubble.  Louisville is looking to bounce back from their loss to rival Kentucky.

-CINCINNATI AT NC STATE.  You get the sense that both teams really need this because neither have put that many big wins on their profile yet.  Cincinnati has lost their only true road game, and NC State doesn’t have any wins that jump out at you yet.

-MARYLAND AT MICHIGAN STATE (Big Ten).  Maryland has been a surprise team this year, and Michigan State has struggled.  It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Terps pulled this one one out on the road.

-DAVIDSON AT VIRGINIA.  Davidson has just one loss and has looked fairly solid, but they haven’t beaten anyone all that strong.  Virginia is a #1 seed caliber team who is unbeaten, so they’ll definitely be tested tonight.

-WILLIAM & MARY AT NORTH CAROLINA.  William & Mary should be one of the better teams in the Colonial, but they’re most likely overmatched tonight against an improving UNC team.

-FLORIDA AT FLORIDA STATE.  The Gators got off to a slow start, but have looked really good in their last few games and can pick up even more momentum with a road win against their rivals.

-CHARLOTTE AT GEORGIA TECH.  A win for GA Tech gets them to 9-3 on the year.

-CHARLESTON AT MIAMI FL.  It’s a buy game, but it’s one the Canes really cannot afford to lose.

-VMI AT GEORGE WASHINGTON.  GW is coming off three big wins in the Diamondhead Classic and can improve to 10-3 with a win in this one.

-LOUISIANA MONROE AT GEORGIA STATE.  Georgia State probably cannot get inside the bubble unless they win out, but they may be good enough to do that.

-HARTFORD AT NOTRE DAME.  Buy game.  Hartford has been somewhat of a disappointment this year.

-FGCU AT PITTSBURGH.  FGCU has looked good at home this year, but not on the road.  They’ve been handily beaten whenever they’ve had the chance to beat someone of note away from home.  A win for Pitt will improve them to 10-3.

-KENT STATE AT KANSAS.  Kent State has looked pretty good this year, and is an impressive 3-1 on the road.  They haven’t won any road games that come close to being as impressive as this would be, though.  Kansas is a solid 9-2 and most of the time plays like a protected seed.

-NORFOLK STATE AT BAYLOR.  Buy game.  Baylor has cracked the rankings.

-OLE MISS AT DAYTON.  Dayton has looked impressive in their last two games despite having a key player dismissed from the team.  They can improve to 10-2 on the year with a win against a respectable Ole Miss team.

-MERCER AT TEXAS A&M.  Buy game.  A win gets TAMU to 8-3.

-OKLAHOMA STATE AT MISSOURI.  Okie State can improve to an impressive 10-2 with a win, as well as add another true road win to their profile.

-NC A&T AT SOUTH CAROLINA.  Buy game.  Angry Frank can get his team to a respectable 8-3.
