11/17 preview

Game of the day:
Georgia St at Iowa St - GSU is everyone's mid-major darling.  Here's a chance at a signature road win to lean on for the season

Other game of the day:
SMU at Gonzaga - SMU missed the tournament with a bad SoS last year, so this is an immediate chance to rectify that mistake.  Gonzaga, playing in the WCC, need to pile up as many quality wins in the non-con as possible.  Early urgency for both sides here

Miami at Florida - Not a trivial game for Florida
Louisiana Tech at Temple - LaTech is the better team, but this is a true road game.  NCAA at-large teams win this game
North Dakota St at Iowa - NDSU isn't as good this year as previous years, FYI
Washington St at TCU - Pac-12 at Big 12....yeah I can't pretend this isn't a garbage game
Ole Miss at Troy - Only notable because Ole Miss has already lost one clunker and are on the road here in an effort to destroy the SEC
Auburn at Colorado - oh hey, cute, another power 5 matchup.  gag
New Mexico St at St Mary's - St Mary's fancies itself as a fringe bubble team, and therefore, this is kind of a must-win
