Highlighted Games for Tuesday, December 4th

-SOUTH DAKOT STATE AT MINNESOTA. South Dakota State is 6-2 on the year, and has a good team, but they need a good win in order to make their profile stick out. They lost to Alabama at the buzzer in the season opener, but have another opportunity to pull off an upset tonight.

-WYOMING AT ILLINOIS STATE. Wyoming is off to an 8-0 start and is coming off a big rivalry win against Colorado. Illinois State has just two losses on the year, and missed getting what would have been a huge quality win on their resume when they came up just short against Louisville in their last game.

-NORTHWESTERN AT BAYLOR. Baylor is coming off a big win at Kentucky and looks to be a solid NCAA team. Northwestern has a nice win against Illinois State, but this would be a huge true road win for them.

-WESTERN MICHIGAN AT MICHIGAN. Michigan is unbeaten and got a rather nice win at Bradley in their last game. Western Michigan has just one loss. We’ll see what they’re made of tonight.

-LOUISVILLE AT COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON. CofC got off to a slow start, but is now rolling. They managed a big win against Baylor, and have a showcase home game tonight against a Louisville team that is without their best player and has been struggling. This will really put CofC on the national scene if they pull off the upset.

-KENT STATE AT BUCKNELL. Two teams that are trying to play their way inside the bubble. Bucknell has a few decent wins already. Kent has struggled more, but this would certainly be a notable road win for them.

-SOUTHERN MISS AT ARIZONA. Southern Miss suffered their first loss of the season over the weekend at New Mexico State. Arizona is unbeaten, but untested. Still, they appear to be very strong this year, though.

-GEORGIAAT GEORGIA TECH. Georgia is probably better than their 2-5 record, but needs to get with it if they want their profile to reflect it. Georgia Tech comes in at 4-2, but looked good in their last game at Illinois.

-TEXAS VS GEORGETOWN. Texas is 5-2, but I have not been impressed by them at all. Georgetown has looked very good.

-UNLV AT PORTLAND. This is the first true road game of the year for UNLV. A win will get them to 6-1.

-LIPSCOMB AT BELMONT. This is the second meeting between the two on the season, who have opted to keep the home and home series going even though it is no longer a conference game. Belmont is coming off a loss at VCU, but can still improve to 6-2 with a win today.

-GEORGE WASHINGTON AT BRADLEY. Bradley is coming off a home loss to Michigan State, but is still a modest 6-2 on the year.

-RICHMOND AT OLD DOMINION. Old Dominion is off to a very disappointing 1-6 start. Richmond is much better at 6-2, but hasn’t looked all that good from what I’ve seen of them.

-FLORIDA GULF COAST AT IOWA STATE. UFGC is 6-3 with a win over Miami, FL and should be able to make quite a bit of noise in the Atlantic Sun this year. It’s probably not enough to get them in the at-large picture, but it’s still a big year for a young program. Iowa State can get to 6-2 with a win.

-UMBC AT GEORGE MASON. Mason can improve to 6-3 with a win.

-NEBRASKA OMAHA AT WISCONSIN. Wiscy should improve to 6-3.

-SOUTH DAKOTA AT IOWA. Iowa can get to 7-2 with a win.

-SOUTHEAST MISSOURI AT MISSOURI. Mizzou shouldn’t have any trouble getting to 7-1.

-EASTERN KENTUCKY AT NC CENTRAL. EKU can improve to a perfect 8-0 with a win.

-NORTHERN KENTUCKY AT TEXAS TECH. Texas Tech can improve to 5-1 with a win, but they’ve played a very weak schedule.

-SAMFORD AT KENTUCKY. Kentucky shouldn’t have too much trouble rebounding from their loss to Baylor.

-WESTERN CAROLINA AT ILLINOIS. Look for Illinois to stay unbeaten.
