College Hoops Viewing Guide: Super Bowl Sunday 2014

Justin K. Aller

Sunday's abbreviated schedule, which begins with a rare morning Big Ten tip, will be over with plenty of time for you to get to, or host, your Super Bowl party.

All TV info is courtesy Matt's College Sports on TV site. He has many more games listed, particularly ones broadcast only on local channels and in-house cable sports/local interest channels that are not widely available nationwide. You'll also want to check out his listings for information on which conference regional matchups and CSN, FSN, and Root Sports contests (all games listed in these posts marked with an *) are available on which affiliates.

All times are Eastern.

Marquee Games

Virginia Cavaliers (16-5, 7-1 ACC) at Pittsburgh Panthers (18-3, 6-2), 12:30 p.m. (ESPNU)

The ACC's second- and third-place teams meet at the Petersen Events Center, where the Cavaliers arrive riding a four-game winning streak. Don't expect this one to be a high-scoring affair.

Michigan Wolverines (16-4, 8-0 Big Ten) at Indiana Hoosiers (13-8, 3-5), 1 p.m. (CBS)

On Thursday night, the Hoosiers collapsed at Nebraska while the Wolverines struggled to get by Purdue. Given Indiana's struggles during Big Ten play and weak non-conference results, a win today won't be enough to get them in the picture, but the resulting loss would knock Michigan from the No. 2 line.

UCLA Bruins (17-4, 6-2) at Oregon State Beavers (12-8, 4-4), 2:30 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Bruins, winners of three in a row, look to complete a second straight weekend sweep in Corvallis, where the Beavers have only lost to California during the Pac-12 campaign. A UCLA win would confirm a higher seed in Tuesday's projection.

Other Viewing Options

Purdue Boilermakers (13-8, 3-5 Big Ten) at Penn State Nittany Lions (11-10, 2-6), 11:30 a.m. (BTN)
USF Bulls (11-10, 2-6 AAC) at Cincinnati Bearcats (20-2, 9-0), 12 p.m. (CBS SN)
Oakland Golden Grizzlies (9-14, 4-4 Horizon) at Milwaukee Panthers (14-9, 4-5), 1 p.m. (Horizon League Network
Mercer Bears (18-5, 9-1 A-Sun) at USC Upstate Spartans (12-10, 5-4), 2 p.m. (ESPN3)
William & Mary Tribe (12-8, 4-3 CAA) at James Madison Dukes (8-13, 3-4), 2:30 p.m. (NBCSN)

Among Sunday's five other televised or streaming games, Cincinnati's attempt to stay two games up on Louisville in the AAC race and Atlantic Sun leaders Mercer's trip to Spartanburg to take on Torrey Craig and the Spartans are the two most interesting on offer.
