A variety of preseason tournaments from around the country continue to sprinkle the coming week's college basketball schedule, and a number of intriguing non-conference matchups are also on this week's agenda. Looking ahead to the week's action, SCS.com glances at twenty games and four of the preseason tournaments you may want to keep an eye as you enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.
Bucknell at Syracuse
With 'Cuse reeling from CvC defeat, can a good Bison team pull the upset?
Detroit at Oklahoma State
Inexperienced Cowboys face a tough team from a very good Horizon League.
Pacific at Oregon
Ducks want to right the ship after last season. A win over the Tigers would be huge.
Nevada at Vermont
Two of last year's Cinderellas, but only one (the Wolfpack) is expected to contend this year.
South Carolina State at Clemson
An in-state battle between the MEAC's best team and a lower-level ACC squad.
Mississippi State at Charlotte
Dawgs have almost no experience, but Charlotte has struggled so far this season.
Florida State at Florida
This one gets the Seminole/Gator weekend started. UF looks like a top ten team.
Eastern Kentucky at Tennessee
EKU nearly took down Wisconsin on Saturday and now faces UT and new coach Bruce Pearl.
Holy Cross at Cincinnati
Bearcats survived a scare from Murray State and now face one of the Patriot League's best teams.
Gardner-Webb at Auburn
The Runnin' Bulldogs nearly knocked off UNC so Jeff Lebo's squad better watch out.
Vanderbilt at Georgetown
The Commodores and Hoyas are always tough foes in their respective conferences.
Chattanooga at Minnesota
The Mocs went down hard at Mississippi State, but here's another chance for an upset.
LSU at West Virginia
This may be the best non-tournament matchup of the week. Winner gains big RPI points.
NC State at Notre Dame
Both teams lost key players from a year ago, so the winner gains some early-season confidence.
Georgia at Western Kentucky
After a loss at ODU, will UGA Coach Dennis Felton lose to his former team too?
Colorado State at Denver
The Pioneers are one of the Sun Belt's best teams. Can they knock off in-state rival CSU?
Dayton at Creighton
A matchup of two traditional mid-major powers. Great to see these teams meet.
Nevada at UNLV
Another tough matchup for the 'Pack this week, this one against the in-state rival Rebels.
Virginia at Arizona
After a week in Maui, how will the Wildcats perform at home?
