1/3 preview

Conference play is in full swing, so let's view one by one.  I'm not listing out every game featuring at least one good team; I'm going for high-impact here:

SMU at Cincinnati in a ginormous game - winner probably gets pole position for the time being in the AAC
Tulane at Memphis - I don't believe in Tulane; we'll know more after this game

Big East:
Villanova at Seton Hall - SHU's signature win chance comes early in conference play
Butler at St John's - tough ask for Butler to get this one
Creighton at Georgetown - mandatory for G'town

Minnesota at Maryland - let's find out if we need to be serious about Minnesota
Illinois at Ohio St - one of these teams is going to be in a big hole in the B1G after this

Pittsburgh at NC State - two teams hovering around the bubble
Georgia Tech at Notre Dame - I don't think GT is real, they can change my mind here
Virginia at Miami - signature win chance for Miami

UConn at Florida - when two desperate teams clash
Iowa St at South Carolina - don't believe in USC; they can obviously prove me wrong here

Big 12:
West Virginia at TCU - time for TCU to get exposed
Baylor at Oklahoma - the Big 12 season is going to be so brutal for so many
