Bubble Games of the Week: January 31st – February 6th

Monday:
No Bubble Games.

Tuesday:
Penn State @ #21 Illinois – 9PM BTN – Can the Nittany Lions complete the sweep of the Illini? The Nits need to notch some road wins to add on to their three impressive home wins.
#16 Kentucky @ Ole Miss – 7PM ESPNU – The Rebel’s declining resume needs a boost.
North Carolina @ Boston College – 9PM ESPN3 – Both in decent shape. BC needs the win more than UNC.

Wednesday:
#5 Duke @ Maryland – 9PM ESPN – Will Maryland finally notch their first big win?
#7 San Diego State @ Colorado State – 9PM – Colorado State has an outside shot at an at-large. A huge home win against the Aztecs will go a long way.
Marquette @ #12 Villanova – 7PM ESPNU – Villanova has lost two in a row, while Marquette is fresh off a win over the ‘Cuse.
#14 Missouri @ Oklahoma State – 9PM ESPN2 – The Cowboys’ resume is steadily declining. A win over Missouri would turn things around.
Nebraska @ Kansas State – 8PM ESPN3 – More declining stock in this game. Kansas State desperately needs some Big 12 wins over the bottom tier.
Georgia @ Arkansas – 9PM ESPN3 – Georgia played tough against Florida and Kentucky in back to back games, but came up empty. Empty won’t cut it against Arkansas.

Thursday:
No Bubble Games.

Friday:
No Bubble Games.

Saturday:
Cincinnati @ #4 Pittsburgh – 6PM ESPN3 – Despite a nice record, the Bearcats are the 10th or 11th best team in the Big East.
#2 Kansas @ Nebraska – 4PM ESPN3 – Could be the second big win for Nebraska in three games.
Baylor @ #16 Texas A/M – 2PM ESPN – Important game for both. A/M has lost 2 of their last 3, while Baylor is struggling to string together some wins.
Colorado @ #14 Missouri – 730PM ESPN3 – After a hot start to Big 12 play, Colorado has fallen off. Need this win.
Butler @ Cleveland State – Noon ESPN2 – Butler is only 6-4 in Horizon League play. They need all the wins they can get.
St. John’s @ UCLA – 1PM CBS – Fresh off their demolishing of Duke at the Garden, the Johnnies take on fellow bubble team UCLA.
Virginia Tech @ Boston College – 1PM – Virginia Tech is right around the bubble. They need to climb the ACC standings.
Memphis @ Gonzaga – 4PM ESPN – Two teams that will be in trouble if they don’t win their respective conferences. The loser probably won’t have much of an at-large shot.
Ole Miss @ Arkansas – 6PM ESPN2 – Must win for both SEC teams.
