B101's Top 12 Games To Watch This Weekend

Here's our take on the 12 biggest games of the weekend...

Georgetown at Syracuse
This game was going to be a good opportunity for the Orange to pick up a big win, until they lost to South Florida. Now it is a must win or else the Orange will likely lose five in a row.

Florida at Vanderbilt
The Gators better play well or else their bracket spot will be up in the air after their embarrassing home loss to LSU.

Clemson at N.C. State
This is a must win game for State if they want to have any chance of getting to at least 8-8 in conference and get a bid.

Temple at Dayton
The upset here might be if Dayton actually wins.

Arkansas at Mississippi State
Battle for first place in the SEC West and the kind of home win that the Bulldogs need to pick to prove that they are tournament worthy.

Texas at Baylor
The Bears have lost four of five and look to avoid falling to .500 in conference.

The winner is in the driver's seat for a first place finish in the MWC, and the at-large bid that will likely come along with it.

Washington State at Oregon
The Ducks look to keep pace with fellow Pac-10 bubble boy Arizona State by picking up a big home win this week.

Michigan State at Indiana
The Hoosiers need to overcome the coaching distractions and pick up a quality win finally or else their seed will soon be plummeting. The Spartans need this one to stay alive for a Big Ten title.

The Bruins look for revenge on the Trojans' home court.

Miami-FL at Georgia Tech
A loss and the Hurricanes are never heard from again.

Oklahoma at Texas Tech
A dangerous game for a Sooners team that needs to start stringing together some wins.
