What to watch: 1/14/09


Michigan State at Penn State (7 p.m./Big Ten Network)

Apparently the Nittany Lions have been relegated to the BTN for the duration of the season.

Duke at Georgia Tech (7 p.m./ESPN)

Raise your hand if you think Duke is the second most likely team to win the national championship. Now raise your other hand if you can name more than one player for Georgia Tech.

South Florida at Pittsburgh (7 p.m./ESPNU)

I'll never forgive Jamie Dixon if the Panthers lay an egg and kill the hype heading into Saturday. Go Pitt.

Elon at Davidson (7 p.m./MASN)

Because Elon has a player you just have to see for yourself.

Temple at Pennsylvania (7 p.m./CSS)

Both teams need a victory to keep alive any hope of claiming a Big Five title.

Syracuse at Georgetown (7:30 p.m./ESPN2)

Two programs with a wee bit of history and just a touch of animosity for one another. It's a must-see game even when the teams are down, which isn't the case this year.

Rutgers at Cincinnati (7:30 p.m./FS Ohio/SNY)

Something's gotta give as two of the league's four winless squads do battle in the Queen City.

SMU at Rice (8 p.m./CBS College Sports)

When I was a little boy, SMU and Rice weren't even in Conference USA.

Southern Illinois at Creighton (8 p.m./FS Midwest)

The Qwest Center is one of the most underrated home court advantages in the country.

Florida at Auburn (8 p.m./Raycom/FS South/ESPN FullCourt)

Two of the SEC's 12 unranked teams do battle in a game that will be played in front of literally hundreds of disinterested spectators.

Nebraska at Iowa State (8 p.m./FS Midwest)

Oh god no.

Michigan at Illinois (8:30 p.m./Big Ten Network)

This is actually a pretty big game for a pair of teams that figure to finish right around each other in the Big East standings.

Colorado at Missouri (9 p.m./ESPNU)

Is the kid with the crazy hair still at Mizzou? No? What about the guy for Colorado who was always trying to murder people? Him neither? Well, there goes my interest.

Wake Forest at Boston College (9 p.m./Raycom/ESPN FullCourt)

The Deacs look to avoid pulling a North Carolina just three days after a signature victory over, well, North Carolina.

Maryland at Miami (9 p.m./Raycom/ESPN FullCourt)

Wasn't Miami supposed to be amazing this year? Is that still happening?

Baylor at Texas A&M (9:30 p.m./ESPN2)

Have not seen the Bears yet this year and am actually sort of looking forward to the opportunity.
