College basketball games to watch 11-9-19

Headliner Games

Iowa St. at Oregon St. at 4:30 p.m. (Pac-12N-Oregon)

Texas at #23 Purdue at 7 p.m. (FS1)

Oklahoma vs. Minnesota (Sanford Pentagon Showcase; Sioux Falls, SD) at 8 p.m. (BTN)

Rhode Island at #7 Maryland at 9 p.m. (FS1)

Boise St. at #15 Oregon at 11 p.m. (Pac-12N)

With college football still taking the stage on Saturdays, FS1, the Big Ten Network, and the Pac-12 Network do some crafty counter-programming for us college basketball fans. This is a remarkably good first Saturday slate of headliners in my opinion. Oregon and Maryland should win at home in their games, but should get some good resistance in the process from Rhody and Boise. The other games seem like toss up kind of games. Enjoy!

Upset Watch Games

Nicholls St. at Pittsburgh at noon (ACCN Extra)

UMass at Fairfield at 1 p.m. (ESPN3)

S. Utah at Nebraska at 2 p.m. (BTN+) $$

Iona at LaSalle at 4 p.m. (NBCSN)

NJIT at Providence at 4:30 p.m. (FSN)

New Orleans at Butler at 7 p.m. (FSN)

Valparaiso at St. Louis at 7 p.m. (FS Midwest/ESPN+ $$)

CS Northridge at New Mexico at 9 p.m. (MWN)

Loyola Marymount at Nevada at 10 p.m. (AT&T SN/MWN)

CS Fullerton at Stanford at 11 p.m. (Pac-12N-Bay Area)

I am again going to guess that at least two of the bigger conference teams in the matchups above lose. I think only one did last time I said that, but there were a few near misses.

Mid-Major Games to Watch

Georgia St. at College of Charleston at 2 p.m. (FloHoops) $$

Wright St. at Miami O. at 2 p.m. (ESPN3)

UMBC at FGCU at 3 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Delaware vs. S. Illinois (Sunshine Slam Tournament; Kissimmee, FL) at 3 p.m. (FloHoops) $$

Monmouth at Hofstra at 4 p.m. (FloHoops) $$

Middle Tenn. St. at Lipscomb at 4 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

N. Iowa at N. Illinois at 4 p.m. (ESPN3)

Austin Peay at W. Kentucky at 4 p.m. (ESPN3)

UC Irvine at Pepperdine at 8 p.m. (WCC Network)

S. Dakota St. at CS Bakersfield (WAC/Summit League Challenge) at 10 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

I straight up love this slate of mid-major games. That is all.

Other games to watch

Robert Morris at Notre Dame (MABC Invitational) at noon (ACCN Extra)

Portland St. at Indiana at 2 p.m. (BTN+) $$

Stony Brook at Seton Hall at 2:30 p.m. (FSN)

San Diego St. at BYU at 4 p.m. (BYU TV)

Kansas St. at UNLV at 4 p.m. (ESPN3)

Indiana St. at Dayton at 7 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Tulsa at UT Arlington at 8 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

I like these games too but not as much as the list at the top. K State-UNLV, SDSU-BYU, and Ind. St.-Dayton could all be really entertaining. Enjoy!
