Bubble Games of the Week: January 24th – 30th

Monday, January 24th:
Baylor @ Kansas State – 9PM ESPN – Both teams aren’t in the best shape. No idea how Joe Lunardi has Baylor in his field… they aren’t even close.

Tuesday, January 25th:
NC State @ Clemson – 7PM – Both teams remain on the outside looking in. Must win.
Richmond @ Dayton – 7PM ESPNU – Richmond has slipped up, and Dayton is right around the bubble. Crucial for both.
#6 Kansas @ Colorado – 8PM ESPN3 – After a hot start in the Big 12, Colorado has slipped a bit. Another scalp opportunity.
#5 UConn @ Marquete – 9PM ESPN3 – Marquette is either the 10th or 11th team from the Big East that is IN at this point. Big opportunity here.

Wednesday, January 26th:
St. John’s @ #20 Georgetown – 7PM ESPN3 – Johnnies continue their brutal stretch of Top 25 opponents.
#8 Texas @ Oklahoma State – 730PM ESPN – Nice opportunity for Oklahoma State. Their good win tally can use a boost.
North Carolina @ Miami – 730PM ESPN2 – Miami has started 1-4 in the ACC, not a must win, but the lack of strength in the ACC might come back to bite them.
UCF @ Memphis – 8PM – After an awesome OOC, UCF is 1-4 in the C-USA.

Thursday, January 27th:
UCLA @ Arizona – 9PM ESPN2 – Battle for second in the Pac-10. Isn’t it sad that the #2 team in the Pac-10 could be a bubble team?
#24 Saint Mary’s @ Gonzaga – 11PM ESPN2 – The Gaels were demolished against Vanderbilt this weekend, while Gonzaga has dropped two straight head scratchers to San Francisco and Santa Clara.

Friday, January 28th:
No Bubble Games.

Saturday, January 29th:
Florida State @ Clemson – Noon – Another must win for Clemson.
Colorado @ Baylor – 130PM ESPN3 – Bubble-OUT battle in the Big 12. Big game for both.
NC State @ UNC – 2PM ESPN – NC State is in the same situation as Clemson, need a win.
Butler @ Valparaiso – 2PM ESPN3 – Butler has not performed well in the Horizon League so far. They go up against the first place Crusaders.
#11 Texas A/M @ Nebraska – 2PM – Nebraska has a nice looking record, but their numbers aren’t good at all.
#10 Syracuse @ Marquette – 3PM ESPNU – The scalp opportunities keep piling up for Marquette.
Tennessee @ Ole Miss – 4PM ESPN3 – Its quite simple: Rebs need wins.
#15 Wisconsin @ Penn State – 4PM BTN – Will Penn State continue their tremendous performance streak against Top 25 opponents? They could use another scalp.
Kansas State @ #6 Kansas – 7PM ESPN – The Wildcats could really be reeling if they lose to Baylor earlier in the week.
UAB @ UCF – 7PM – Must win for both C-USA teams.
USC @ Arizona – 730PM – USC has been up and down all season, they need to be up in this match up.

Sunday, January 30th:
#3 Duke @ St. John’s – 1PM CBS – Can’t say on Selection Sunday that St. John’s didn’t have opportunities.
Dayton @ Duquesne – 2PM – Duquesne has taken Rhode Island’s place in the Atlantic 10 bubble situation. They are 5-0 in league play.
Miami @ Virginia Tech – 530 FSN – Two of the more fortunate ACC bubble teams.
#17 Washington @ Washington St – 10PM FSN – Big intrastate Pac-10 match up. Washington State’s numbers will be boosted, but a win is preferable.
