Television will be teeming with college games this season. Here's
a guide to the best matchups.
Oklahoma vs. Ohio State in Maui
This game, between two teams committed to applying pressure from
the git-go, will be an early gauge of how good the up-and-coming
New Mexico at Arizona
Last year the Lobos won this matchup with the help of their vocal
fans in their infamous Pit, knocking off the No. 1 Wildcats. It's
payback time in Tucson.
Louisville vs. Indiana
Notre Dame vs. Kentucky in the Hoosier Dome
This is the second of these annual superpower summits, part of a
UNLV at Arizona
This beauty of a game will be spiced up by an incipient feud
between the two coaching staffs, arising out of a series of
Loyola-Marymount at Oklahoma
A match made in TV heaven and one to bamboozle even the most
facile scoreboard operator. You read it here first: 132-121, Sooners.
Memphis State at Tennessee
The game no one in the Volunteer State expected to see (the two
have played only once, in 1970). First Kentucky-Louisville came to
pass, now this.
Evansville at Murray State
ESPN will celebrate New Year's twice: on the set in Connecticut
just before tip-off at midnight eastern standard time, then again in
Murray, Ky., at halftime.
Syracuse at Georgetown, Ohio State at Iowa, Utah State at UC Santa
The best of four Big Monday triple-headers in February. Owens and
Mourning do battle in the opener.
Duke vs. Arizona in East Rutherford, N.J.
The consolation game that wasn't played at last spring's Final
Four. Danny Ferry and Sean Elliott duel for Player of the Year.
Georgetown at Syracuse
Just as Pitt played in the Dome last March with a chance to win
the Big East on the regular season's last day, the Hoyas may have the
Iowa at Michigan
Soon after the Big East has settled its score on this afternoon,
these two teams figure to take care of the same item on the Big Ten
