Tonight we get three college football games: first, at 7:00 PM, we get East Carolina at Cincinnati on ESPN2. Then, at 8:00 PM, we get Southern Miss at UTSA on CBS Sports before closing out the trifecta with the 9:00 PM west coast game on ESPN between Cal and USC. Both the Flyers and the Pens play tomorrow night, and in the NFL we get the Bills at the Dolphins at 8:30 on the NFL Network.

I give bscaff credit for being the only one to correctly pick Ohio State over Michigan State. I laugh in bscaff's general direction for being the only one to incorrectly pick Purdue over Wisconsin. Without that little gaff he would have had a perfect week, which no one did.

Not much has changed a couple people shuffle around a bit but there's nothing earth shaking here.

Sat 11/15/14 Michigan State @ Maryland College Park, Md. BTN 8:00 PM ET

Northwestern and Penn State get a break from the Big Ten with out of conference foes, although the Lions have a much easier match-up then the Wildcats -- Notre Dame is going to be a tough row to hoe. Nebraska and Wisconsin looks like a fun game on paper, and if Michigan State had not lost last week I'd say Maryland is a gimme. Now? I'm not so sure.
