Tonight we have only one college game as No. 21 Clemson travels to take on Wake Forest on ESPN at 7:30. In the NFL, we get the Browns at the Bengals, who both remarkably sit at 5 wins. That game starts at 8:25 and can be seen on the NFL network. In the NHL, the Flyers welcome the Panthers at 7 PM on CSPN, and the Pens travel to take on the Jets at 8 PM on Root Sports. That's a full slate.

Can Iowa keep their win streak alive? Will Indiana shake hands with Penn State before the game? Which team in the Michigan - Northwestern game will suck just a little less? Will I be sober enough to finish the entire OSU/MSU game (spoiler alert: probably not)?
