Saturday's Top Ten

1. Cincinnati-Marquette Two teams that no one thought would be this good are currently the third and fourth best teams in the Big East. Marquette will win because they are home, have Steve Novak, and Cincy's only road game was 12/10.

2. Kentucky-Kansas If Kansas loses then they will be squarely on the bubble come Selection Sunday and will most likely be on the outside looking in, but a win solves all their problems. Kentucky will be looking for revenge from last year's home loss to Kansas. A win that they will get.

3. NC State-UNC NC State has played awesome this year after the departure of Julius Hodge. That awesomeness will continue at Chapel Hill to a team still looking to find itself.

4. Duke-Wake Another Tobacco Road gem. Duke is just too good to lose to a so far erratic Wake Forest team.

5. LSU-UConn UConn got Marcus Williams back and promptly lost to Marquette. Well they will get revenge against an LSU team in desperate need of a marquee win which they won't be getting.

6. Ohio St.-Indiana Ohio St. is unbeaten but has only beat Iowa St. by 3 and LSU by 2 both of which aren't as good as Indiana. Couple that with the fact that Indiana is at home and Ohio St. will suffer their first loss of the season.

7. Colorado-Texas Texas finally got a big out of conference win against Memphis and now will face a Colorado team that needs a big win of its own. Although 10-1, they haven't played as good a team as Texas and will finally realize what playing against a good team is like.

8. Northern Iowa-Missouri State Missouri State needs another big win to distance themselves from the other MVC at-large contenders. With Northern Iowa the likely conference champion, Missouri State could pick a worse place to start. Pick-Missouri State.

9. Florida-Georgia Florida keeps on rolling, while Georgia's resume looks like ever other SEC teams'. A Florida win would be huge for them and they have given two teams (W. Kentucky and Clemson) their first lose of the season, but they will not make it a trifecta.

10. USC-Arizona USC looks surprisingly spry at the moment with a big win against UNC and 2 good conference wins against Stanford and @Arizona St. Whereas Arizona has been up and down of late. Winning @Washington but falling to an injuried UCLA team at home. USC has a good chance for a big upset win. Pick- USC
