THERE ARE 37 COLLEGE BASKETBALL GAMES ON NATIONAL TELEVISION TODAY.
Oh, it’s delightful.
In the first television window of the day alone, there are five ranked teams on the road: #2 Baylor, #4 Auburn, #9 Florida State, #18 Seton Hall, and #21 Ohio State. And that’s just before 1pm Central.
There’s only (lol, “only”) five more ranked teams on the road for the entire rest of the day. That’s 10 total ranked teams on the road, and ranked teams on the road are the best possible measure of the potential craziness involved in a particular day of college hoops. No matter what conference or team you support, you have to admit that the situation facing us today verrrrrrry much sets us up for what our friends at Banner Society would refer to as BLOOD WEEK~! although it’s really just one day.
I could keep going on and on and on and on and on about what’s on tap for Saturday, but 1) THERE’S SO MUCH and 2) I’ve already riled you up with the potential for BLOOD WEEK~! so let’s just get to the schedule.
Here’s the full rundown of all the nationally televised games today, with all times Central as always.
