--Northern Arizona at Weber State. The outright lead in the Big Sky is on the line!
--Auburn at Alabama. In-state rivalry alert!
--Washington State at Arizona State. Devils need to right the ship, but that's a tall order vs Cougars.
--Oklahoma at Baylor. Two much improved Big XII teams.
--New Mexico at BYU. Two of the better Mt West clubs.
--Appalachian State at Chattanooga. BIG SoCon showdown for outright lead in the North.
--NC State at Florida State. Both need it desperately.
--UConn at Indiana. Hoosiers need to stack up as many quality wins as possible for seeding purposes. UConn is fighting to solidify their NCAA status.
--Gonzaga at Memphis. Slim as the chances may be, this is one of the few remaining games that could make Memphis sweat.
--Mississippi at Mississippi State. This one has not meant this much in awhile.
--Minnesota at Ohio State. Gophers need to score some quality wins.
--Southern Cal at Oregon. Both need it, but Ducks need it more as they have lost 3 straight.
--Wisconsin at Purdue. Badgers looked vulnerable last time out and Boilers are starting to roll a bit.
--Dayton at Richmond. Flyers must respond on the road after that pasting at Xavier.
--UNLV at San Diego St. Two of four MWC teams with just one conference loss.
--Creighton at SIU. Usually for Valley supremacy, but neither can afford to lose this one.
--Saint Joseph's at Temple. Big Five, baby! And both teams are playing well.
--Notre Dame at Villanova. Two of mass of viable Big East teams.
--Georgetown at West Virginia. Tough roadie for Hoyas.
--Vanderbilt at Florida. Gators have just two wins vs RPI top 100: GA Southern and Temple.
--Duke at Maryland. Terps are at home and riding high after their win over UNC.
--Xavier at UMass. Muskies were a wrecking ball vs Dayton this week.
--Clemson at Miami-FL. Both got off to great starts, but both have faded a bit lately.
--Providence at Syracuse. Both look destined to be Bubble Boys.
