All eyes will be on Miami and the Super Bowl matchup between the Colts and Bears on Sunday, but before we get that far, there's a full day of college basketball to be played on Saturday. Among the top showdowns slated for that day is a Big Ten rematch from last weekend featuring Ohio State and Michigan State. Oregon and USC will get together in the Pac-10, while Georgia and Vanderbilt will do the same in the SEC. Texas A&M and Kansas, meanwhile, is likely the biggest game of the day. Virginia Tech and Boston College meet in ACC play on Saturday before another conference matchup, this one featuring Florida State and Duke, takes place early in the day on Sunday. Here's a look at all of the weekend's top games!
Virginia Tech at Boston College
The Hokies and Eagles are each just a half-game behind North Carolina in the ACC standings heading into the weekend. The winner here could find themselves in first place if the Heels were to stumble on the road at rival NC State.
Oregon at Southern Cal
Two of the Pac-10's best teams get together in L.A. just two days after the Ducks already had to take on UCLA. Both teams look NCAA-bound at this point but could always use another quality win to add to the resume.
Ohio State at Michigan State
It's a rematch from last weekend when the Spartans gave Ohio State a run for their money in the second half before coming up just short. OSU is tied for first in the league, while MSU has lost two straight on the road and is 4-4 in Big Ten play.
Georgia at Vanderbilt
Both of these SEC East squads have been playing well lately, and each is now 5-3 in league play. The 'Dores have won four of their last five and gave Florida a run in Gainesville on Wednesday, while UGA has won five of its last seven.
Texas A&M at Kansas
These two teams may be the best the Big XII has to offer this year, though Texas and Oklahoma State could make a case as well. Both the Aggies and Jayhawks are 6-1 in league play this year and on top of the conference standings.
Florida State at Duke
These two teams have been hot-and-cold so far, but they'll get to preview the big Super Bowl matchup when they hit the hardwood early in the day on Sunday. The Devils have won five in a row, while FSU has won four of its last five.
