Georgetown at St. John's (7 p.m./ESPN2)
It's like preseason Big Monday. The Johnnies are 2-0 in the Big East with a pair of impressive road wins over West Virginia and Providence, meaning tonight will be the most important game ever played inside Madison Square Garden....ever.
Pennsylvania at Kentucky (7 p.m./ESPNU)
After a loss to a rival, my rule is you are forbidden to make a joke about said rival for the same number of days as the final margin of defeat. Jarrod Polson: rest easy until the 15th.
UNC-Wilmington at William & Mary (7 p.m./MASN)
It's funny if you shorten "William" to "Bill."
Michigan State at Northwestern (7:30 p.m./Big Ten Network)
A Big Ten team will win something for the first time in 2011.
Florida State at Auburn (8 p.m./FSN)
At least one-hundred Tiger fans will be on hand to look on indifferently.
Rhode Island at Florida (9 p.m./ESPNU)
Apparently the SEC is hesitant to start conference play until the end of bowl season. Their fear of focus prematurely shifting entirely to basketball is certainly warranted.
Nevada at Fresno State (11 p.m./WAC Network/ESPN FullCourt)
Serious Las Vegas Bowl implications on the line.
