I Slept On It: Super Bowl Sunday Afternoon

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

A few college basketball games were played before what I'm going to call the worst Super Bowl ever. Some of them were decent. As for the others...

American

In the lone AAC game of the day, Cincinnati (21-2, 10-0) kept its perfect league record intact by holding off USF (11-11, 2-7), 50-45. It was the 14th win in a row for the Bearcats, who were led by Sean Kilpatrick's 18 points.

ACC

Virginia (17-5, 8-1) retained sole possession of second place by handing Pittsburgh (18-4, 6-3) its second home loss in the span of a week. Malcolm Brogdon's three with under a second to go gave the Cavaliers the 48-45 win. Keep in mind that even though the Panthers currently have a 7-4 record against the Top 100, only one of those victories -- over Stanford in the Legends Classic final in Brooklyn -- came against a team that currently sits in the Top 50.

Big Ten

Michigan (16-5, 8-1) lost its perfect Big Ten record in Bloomington, where Indiana (14-8. 4-5) got 27 points from Yogi Ferrell in a 63-52 victory. Nik Stauskas was held to just six points on the afternoon for the Wolverines. In State College, Penn State (12-10, 3-6) won its third in a row, dropping struggling Purdue (13-9, 3-6) by 11.

Pac-12

The Pac-12 standings are now rather clumped together after Oregon State (13-8, 5-4) upended UCLA (17-5, 6-3) by a 71-67 count in Corvallis. While Arizona leads the conference at 8-1 and the Bruins and California are tied for second at 6-3, there's an unbelievable five-way tied for fourth, featuring the Beavers, Arizona State, Stanford, Washington, and Colorado.

Elsewhere

Just one mid-major game had serious bracket impact on Sunday afternoon. Mercer (18-6, 9-2) now shares the Atlantic Sun lead with Florida Gulf Coast after an 80-61 loss at USC Upstate (13-10, 6-4).
