First off, I apologize for not posting a Tip-Off Marathon preview/thread as I had planned. I was feeling simply awful after driving back from Syracuse on Monday morning/afternoon and spent about 18 hours straight in bed. So, here are the games I'm most interested in for this first Wednesday of the season.
All TV info is courtesy Matt's College Sports on TV site. He has many more games listed, and you'll also want to check out his listings for information on which ACC and SEC regional contests and CSN and FSN games (marked with a *) are available on which affiliates.
All times are Eastern.
Wright State Raiders at Georgetown Hoyas, 7 p.m. (FS1)
One of the favorites for the Horizon crown plays its first game against Division I opposition, visiting the Hoyas, who fell to Oregon in the Armed Forces Classic in Korea on Friday night.
Kent State Golden Flashes at Seton Hall Pirates (Coaches vs. Cancer Classic), 7 p.m. (FS2)
The Golden Flashes look to follow up Monday's win at Temple with a win on the road in Newark. Note that even if Kent State topples the Pirates, the hosts still will advance to the Classic's semifinals in Brooklyn.
Florida State Seminoles at UCF Knights, 7 p.m. (ESPNews)
Like Wright State, UCF also faces its first D1 opposition this evening, hosting an FSU squad that handled Jacksonville easily on Friday.
Bucknell Bison at Penn State Nittany Lions, 7 p.m. (Big Ten Digital Network)
The Nittany Lions handled Wagner on Saturday, but now they must watch out for the Bison, who gave Stanford all they could handle before falling to the Cardinal by four on Friday.
Valparaiso Crusaders at Illinois Fighting Illini, 7:30 p.m. (BTN)
The Crusaders and Illini are a pair of teams with two wins under their respective belts. Valpo followed up a good home win against Murray State with one against non-D1 North Park, while Illinois took out both Alabama State and Jacksonville State in its exempt event.
Southern Miss. Golden Eagles at DePaul Blue Demons (CBE Hall of Fame Classic), 8 p.m. (FS2)
The Golden Eagles will look to pull the upset in Chicago before heading to Mobile for the CBE Hall of Fame Classic's subregional.
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles at Kansas State Wildcats, 8 p.m. (FS Kansas City/FCS Pacific)
The Golden Eagles, who will threaten in the Southland, will look to follow Northern Colorado in defeating Bruce Weber's Wildcats in Manhattan.
Wyoming Cowboys at Colorado Buffaloes (Global Sports Main Event), 9 p.m. (Pac-12 Network Main/Arizona/Mountain)
These two teams have one thing in common: they've both defated UT-Martin as part of this round-robin. The Buffaloes win over the Skyhawks came two days after they fell to Baylor in Dallas.
