The games I've put in bold are the ones I'll be watching; I don't know if they'll be close or particularly interesting, but they're the ones that made me go "OOOOOH" on Selection Sunday.  (I'm as shocked as you are that Temple - Penn State didn't make the cut.)  Your mileage may vary.

Your comments are both welcome and expected.  Enjoy the games.
