Arkansas (32) at Georgia (51)

Providence (36) at Villanova (2)

Clemson (6) at Virginia (4)-- Probably both in so either way...

Oklahoma State (92) at Texas Tech (8)

Vanderbilt (141) at Tennessee (12)-- This would drop Tennessee to just 4-4 in conference play.

Kansas (7) at Oklahoma (11)-- Probably both in, but a KU win helps our RPI and outlook.

Alabama (26) at Ole Miss (102)

Creighton (35) at St. John's (81)

Northwestern (127) at Minnesota (75)-- We've beaten both, but having Minny  in the top 75 would give us a tier 1 Road win.

Texas A&M (33) at LSU (101)

Mississippi State (76) at Kentucky (19)

 

 

Teams we want to win in BOLD I would think.

 

** Will update after games are played and highlight winning team in green.  Huskers night off to a pretty good start with Tennessee being the only bad result.  Though they probably will be in anyways.  Also, OU, but that was just to make us look better.

Good night for the Huskers bubble chances.  Don't look now, but Northwestern is quietly sitting at 4-5 just a game  back from us.  That Minnesota game though... certainly looking a lot more winnable on the road.  Minny is probably out of an at large bid now as well.

Minnesota could maybe - maybe - get on the bubble at 10-8, since they only had 2 non-conference losses..  That means one more loss, but, they are at Purdue, at Michigan, have Michigan State at home, as well as Nebraska and Iowa at home and Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa on the road.  They're more likely to have 4 or more losses than one.  Stick a fork in 'em.

 

Northwestern probably needs 11-7 to see the bubble.  So, they'd need a 7-2 finish against Michigan State at home, two games against Michigan, two games against Maryland, two games against Wisconsin, and road games against Iowa and Rutgers.  So they'd have to either beat MSU and go 1-1 against Michigan or Maryland, or lose to MSU and sweep either Michigan or Maryland, and win all of the other three road games as well as against Wisconsin at home.  That's possible but not real likely.

Rutgers (180) vs. Nebraska (70)

Xavier (4) vs. Marquette (46)

Florida State (41) vs. Georgia Tech (142)

Florida (26) vs. South Carolina (56)

Fordham (274) vs. Rhode Island (10)Pitt

Miami (FL) (21) vs. Louisville (15)-- Both are probably in.

Cincinnati (25) vs. Temple (47)

Purdue (10) vs. Michigan (38) Kind of want Michigan to make a run so we can get a better victory out of 72-52. But the game's in Indiana.

Uconn (85) vs. SMU (53) No chance of UConn eclipsing us, is there?

Middle Tennessee (23) vs. UTSA (268) Go, 'Runners!

Ohio State (14) vs. Penn State (133) Just can't root for Penn State.

Arizona (17) vs. Colorado (66) Just can't root for Colorado

Wichita State (29) vs. UCF (67) Is it better for a former opponent to win, or for a fellow bubble-mate to lose? 

Arizona State (30) vs. Utah (62) ASU looking less formidable, but it appears Utah is more our competition here.

UCLA (64) vs. California (176) Go, Bears from Berkeley, though I can't believe the Pac-12 gets more than three teams in.

Saint Mary's (36) vs. BYU (73) BYU needs to go down, now and in the conference tournament.

Portland (232) vs. Gonzaga (57) Seriously? Do the Pilots even have a chance?

Purdue (10) vs. Michigan (38)-- Want them top 30!

Uconn (85) vs. SMU (53)

Middle Tennessee (23) vs. UTSA (268)

Ohio State (14) vs. Penn State (133)

Arizona (17) vs. Colorado (66)

Wichita State (29) vs. UCF (67)- This one is tough.  Me personally doesn't want a over 100 RPI loss.  I don't think they will  be bubbly at the end of the season.  Tough conference.

Arizona State (30) vs. Utah (62)

UCLA (64) vs. California (176)

Saint Mary's (36) vs. BYU (73)-- I would think that if it isn't Zaga and St. M, that it is just a 1 bid league...

Portland (232) vs. Gonzaga (57)

Have a hard time thinking Penn St. not better for us since we play them twice and Ohio St. once.  

This seems like a more appropriate thread to post what I just posted in a different one. I agree with you. This would be good for us, I think. We play Penn State twice, Ohio State once; we didn't beat OSU so them losing does not hurt a quality win; and heck, Ohio State losing could MAYBE bring them down closer to us in the Big Ten seeding.

more precisely, a team like Ohio State will not drop enough after a loss to be anything else but a Tier 1 game.  Penn State winning could help pop them up a tier?

 

Plus we play PSU twice... :)
