Your College Basketball Saturday Viewing Guide: December 4, 2021

Hey, look at that, 23 nationally televised games!

So I’m putting the Marquette/Wisconsin Game Thread together for the site, and part of that is noting KenPom’s Thrill Score and remarking on where it ranks in the national picture. That’s when I realized that there were 92 men’s college basketball games scheduled today.

I wandered over to to scroll through the list of games to see the national television schedule..... and boy howdy, there are 23 nationally televised games today! That’s absolutely worth doing a Viewing Guide!

Okay, yes, one of them is a ranked Seton Hall team hosting a Division 2 team as a regular season game. They can’t all be award winners.

There are 14 (!) other ranked teams in action on national TV today. That’s a pretty good setup, and five of them are on the road. That always increases the chance that we see an upset, although one of them is a guarantee that we won’t see an upset.

That’s the best game of the day, and it’s Gonzaga traveling a little bit west to host #16 Alabama in Seattle. Technically a neutral site game, I guess, because it’s not The Kennel, but let’s be clear: There will clearly be more Gonzaga fans than Alabama fans in Climate Pledge Arena.

Here’s your full schedule of nationally televised games for the day! There’s a bunch more on streaming, so if you catch something that’s a barnburner, shout it out in the comments for everyone else to flip on.
