ATB: Saturday Preview

Posted by rtmsf on January 4th, 2008

ATB v.4

01.04.08

Recap. There weren’t any games worth a damn tonight, typical for a Friday, so we’re just going to give a preview for tomorrow.  There are a handful of good games, but we wouldn’t say it’s going to be a sick Saturday.  So here goes…  

On Tap Today (all times EST).

  • #3 Kansas (-11) v. Boston College (ESPN) 12pm – on paper, this looks like it could be upset city, but we’re just not seeing it (KU by 20).
  • Syracuse (-8.5) v. South Florida (ESPN FC) 12pm – here’s USF’s (10-4) first shot at legitimacy.
  • Charlotte (-1) v. Maryland (ESPNU) 12pm - another shot for the A10 to pick up a BCS victory.
  • #24 Arizona (-6) v. Oregon (FSN) 2pm - lose this one, and Oregon is officially in trouble.
  • Georgetown (-16.5) v. Rutgers (ESPN FC) 2pm – GTown looks like they can lose every game, but they rarely do.
  • #13 Butler (-11) v. Valparaiso 2pm – solid early Horizon matchup.
  • Michigan v. Purdue (-12.5) (ESPN) 2pm – this game being on the WWL tomorrow offends our sensibilities.
  • Louisville (-2) v. Kentucky (CBS) 4pm – didn’t this game used to mean something?
  • #16 Vanderbilt (-7.5) v. UMass (ESPN FC) 4pm – Game of the day – can UMass win at Memorial (after winning at Cuse and BC)?
  • #5 UCLA (-5) v. California (FSN) 6pm – possible coming-out party for Cal?
  • #15 Texas (-9.5) v. #25 St. Mary’s (FSSW) 6pm - second-best game of the day, but how will SMC react to a hostile environment?
  • Penn (NL) v. NJIT 7pm - not even the hapless Quakers can give up a win to NJIT (0-16 and counting…).
  • Stanford (-6) v. #23 USC 8pm - both teams very much need this game, as the loser ends up 0-2 in the Pac-10.
  • #12 Texas A&M (-15) v. LSU (ESPNU) 8pm – these teams seem to play a lot.
  • Gonzaga (-12) v. Georgia 8pm - an odd cross-continental matchup.
  • Baylor (pick) v. Arkansas (ESPN FC) 8:30pm - this game could make all the difference for one of these teams come Selection Sunday.
  • Notre Dame (-5.5) v. Connecticut (ESPN) 9pm - pretty nice Big East matchup in South Bend.
  • #4 Washington St. (-2.5) v. Washington 10pm - Wazzu goes for its sixth in a row v. the Huskies.

    I would say South Florida blew their shot at legitamacy. The Orange are really starting to look good.
