Tuesday Night Must Watch TV

If you were going to choose a weeknight to stay home and watch basketball, this is the penultimate Tuesday night of the regular season. You have multiple excellent games today and tonight.

It all starts with an afternoon game at 2 PM Eastern Time on ESPN3 when Akron visits Buffalo in a key MAC game that will directly affect MAC Tournament seedings.

At 5 PM, West Virginia hosts Baylor on ESPN. After losing at Kansas, the Bears could begin to face a little jeopardy on the 1-seed line with a loss to the Mountaineers, who could move up to a 1-seed if they win out.

The regular season game of the year should have been Gonzaga and Baylor back in December, but that game became a Covid casualty. Tonight’s Michigan-Illinois game in Ann Arbor, at 7 PM on ESPN, could easily be a Final Four preview, as the two Big Ten powers both have the talent and cohesiveness to win four games in March Madness. This game should be as exciting as some of the Duke-North Carolina March games in the past, maybe even more exciting.

The Big Ten festivities don’t end with the biggie in A2. At 8PM on the Big Ten Network, Michigan State hosts Indiana in a must-win game for the Spartans. The Hoosiers have played themselves out of at-large status with too many losses.

At the same time on the ACC Network, Georgia Tech hosts Duke in what in effect is an at-large qualifying game. This is the best Yellow Jacket team in a decade or more, while Duke cannot afford another conference loss and still harbor at-large hopes.

There’s one more really Big game from the Big Ten. At 9PM, Wisconsin visits Purdue in a crucial game for Big Ten Tournament seeding. This game will air on ESPN2.

Finally at 9PM, on ESPN, Ole Miss hosts Kentucky in a must-win game. The Rebels must win tonight, beat Vanderbilt on Saturday, and then advance to the SEC Tournament Championship Game to have an at-large bid possibility.

The Games You Want To See This Week

So, it looks like many of you will be home for Thanksgiving this year, which means your turkey dinner will be served on your dining room table, and maybe that means that this weekend you will be cleaning your dining room table off from what it is normally used for, since nobody eats in their dining room any more. Maybe some of you do, but so many of us are lucky to eat with our spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, or friends, and when we do, it is more likely to be in the breakfast room or den than in the formal dining room.

So, while you are spending all day cleaning up, you just might want to have a television/computer/smart phone or two or five broadcasting games to take your mind off all the hard, boring Fall cleaning that you usually put off until March or April.

If college football can make it through a week without seeing another 15 games postponed or cancelled, you should get your fill of great games Saturday.

Take a look at what is on tap for this week.

12:00 PM Eastern Time Slot

ESPN2: Coastal Carolina vs. Appalachian St.: The Sun Belt East Division Title is up for grabs, and this should be worth watching. CCU is still undefeated, and a win over the Mountaineers could move up to as high as #12 in the nation, as they rank #15 tonight. Losses by BYU, Cincinnati, and Marshall could open the door for the Chanticleers to get the NY6 Bowl if they run the table.

FOX: Ohio State vs. Indiana: This sounds like a great basketball game in late February maybe looking for a top two or three seed in the Big Dance. But, now this is the big game of the year in the Big Ten East. The winner is almost a lock to make it to the Big Ten Championship Game, and the winner will also be in the top four in the nation and in line for a potential playoff bid. We have written at length in the past about the Cardiac Kids of 1967 at Indiana, and how that was one of our Captain’s favorite teams back then. This IU team just broke the mold of Cardiac Kids 2 with the thumping of Michigan St. Maybe, they will break the mold of what happened to them against Minnesota 53 years ago.

3:30 PM Eastern Time Slot

CBS: Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss: The Aggies lost to Alabama and beat Florida. They are still in contention for a Playoff spot. Ole Miss can score 40 points and gain 500 yards on just about anybody. It will be a fun shootout. CANCELLED

ABC: Northwestern vs. Wisconsin: Wow! How could the Big Ten planned any better than to follow up Ohio State and Indiana with this game? This will most likely decide the Big Ten West Title. Wisconsin has looked scary good in its two games, good enough to possibly be the second best team in college football to this point. Northwestern is 4-0 and has a couple of impressive wins, so don’t count out the Wildcats in this backyard brawl.

4:00 PM Eastern Time Slot

Iowa State vs. Kansas St.: Did you realize that the Cyclones are currently in first place in the Big 12? And, Kansas State is one game behind tied for third with Oklahoma and Texas? If Iowa State wins this game, they could almost wrap up one of the two Big 12 Championship Game spots, especially if Bedlam goes the way it usually goes.

7:00 PM Eastern Time Slot

CBSSN: Fresno State vs. San Jose State: Brent Brennan deserves a lot of credit for taking San Jose State and making them potentially the class of the Mountain West Conference amid all the chaos going on at CEFCU Stadium, where half of the stadium has been removed and left as a large hill while a multi-year remodel is ongoing. If he wins in Fresno this week, the Spartans will only have Nevada left in their path to the MWC West Title, and then they might get some respect from the pollsters.

7:30 PM Eastern Time Slot

ABC: Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma St.: Bedlam becomes a Big 12 Championship Game eliminator. Oklahoma seems to have righted the ship after losing to Kansas State and Iowa State, while Oklahoma State just lost to Texas. The loser basically has no path to second place in the league, while the winner will still have to win additional games to secure a top two spot.

10:30 PM Eastern Time Slot

ESPN: Utah vs. USC: USC has survived two miraculous comebacks when the Trojans trailed in the final minute of both games plays so far. As for Utah, they just want to play. The Utes are like the young comic on the old Johnny Carson Tonight Show, when after Bob Hope and Dean Martin carried on to the point where the comic had to be bumped and asked to come back another night, Utah has showed up at the Green Room twice only to not make it on the show. The Utes are the final team committed to playing this year to play their first game. Still, this game should go a long way in deciding the Pac-12 South title. For what it’s worth, 2-0 Colorado has already seen their game cancelled this week.
