WAKE UP! Saturday Morning Early Open Thread

New, 170 comments

On a crucial Saturday throughout the nation, even the morning games are compelling.

WAKE UP! It's sorting out Saturday, as there are four key matchups pitting ranked teams, including six teams in the Top 12. Sparty-Wolverines, Florida-LSU, and Alabama-A&M you already know. To those, add an undefeated Iowa team hosting Northwestern. Who'd have thought that would be a huge game in the Big Ten?

Looking closer to home, most of the conference action is mid-day and primetime, but, there is a doozy at 11 Central, when the Memphis Tigers host the Ole Miss Rebels. Whatever the over is, take it. This one will define "shootout."

The Starkville Bulldogs have a sneaky tough game with an increasingly-competent La. Tech team. A State loss isn't unfathomable, and is actually more possible than CLANGA wants to admit.

Here are some games to keep an eye on this morning:

Louisiana Tech at Mississippi State 11am/12pm, SECN

West Virginia at Baylor 11am/12pm, FOX FOX wordmark.svg

Iowa at Northwestern 11am/12pm, ESPN2

Louisville at Florida State 11am/12pm, ESPN ESPN

Ole Miss at Memphis 11am/12pm, ABCABCor
