11-18-19 College Basketball Games to Watch
SMU at Evansville (-2) at 7 p.m. (ESPN+) $$
No ranked vs. ranked headliners tonight and really no real headliner arguably. However, I chose this game because I do think Evansville’s game tonight will game some national attention thanks to their upset of UK. Both SMU and Evansville are 3-0, and the crowd should be pumped. I think SMU spoils the atmosphere, but it should be fun to watch.
Upset Watch Games
Utah Valley at Kentucky (-25) (BBN Showcase) at 7 p.m. (ESPN2)
William & Mary at Oklahoma (-15 ½) (Hall of Fame Classic On-Campus Game) at 7 p.m. (FSN)
N. Colorado at W. Virginia (-16) (Cancun Challenge Preliminary Round game) at 7 p.m. (AT&T SN)
Colgate at Auburn (-14) (Legends Classic Regional Round Game) at 8 p.m. (SECN)
Wofford at Missouri (-10 ½) (Hall of Fame Classic On-Campus Game) at 8 p.m. (SECN+)
UC Irvine at Colorado (-10 ½) at 9 p.m. (Pac-12N)
UTSA at Utah St. (-19) at 9 p.m. (Stadium on Facebook Watch)
S. Utah at UCLA (-12 ½) (Maui on the Mainland game) at 11 p.m. (Pac-12N)
The most obvious upsets to me are William & Mary, Wofford, or UC Irvine, but this season has proven anything can happen (see the Headliner above for more on that). I put Utah Valley on the list at UK, but I suspect UK will not take them lightly after Evansville.
Other games to Watch
Appalachian St. at UNC Greensboro (-9 ½) (Spartan Invitational; Greensboro, NC) at 7 p.m. (ESPN+) $$
Hawaii at Illinois (-15 ½) at 8 p.m. (ESPNU)
Air Force at TCU (-16 ½) at 9 p.m. (FSN)
Prairie View A&M at California (-14) (Empire Classic Regional Round game) at 10 p.m. (Pac-12N-Bay Area)
Abilene Christian at UNLV (-10 ½) at 10 p.m. (MWN)
Hawaii-Illinois is the most interesting game on this list probably. The others could be good games if the ones above don’t float your boat. Enjoy!
