105 games total, but only 14 with a national broadcast?! BUMMER.

Ed Zurga

I can deal with ESPN broadcasting the Division 2 and FCS college football championship games. I can deal with ESPN2 broadcasting the NCAA Volleyball championship. I don't care for ESPN airing three straight pointless exhibition games that aren't doing anything other than lining the pockets of the coaches who get a bonus for getting their team to a bowl game.

In any case, of the 14 games with a national broadcast, nine of them feature a ranked team. The final one of the night is the second half of the double header that Marquette is playing in, and it might be the best game of the day with two ranked teams butting heads.
