    Kenpom has 4 Big 12 teams...
    #1 Kansas
    #5 Baylor
    #6 West Virginia
    #25 Texas Tech
    ..ranked above any SEC team:
    #27 Auburn
    #28 Kentucky
    #29 Florida

    This is a HUGE game day tomorrow for the SEC, not just for the Gators.

    10 games, 5 involving ranked (AP/Coaches Poll) tomorrow. I'd love to see the SEC outperform and knock off each and everyone of these teams.

    Go Gators.

    I wouldn't say the Big12 is overrated in comparison to the SEC. They've won this matchup every year but one, I believe.

    With Baylor, Kansas and West Virginia, the B12 is top heavy while the SEC has more parity with seven SEC teams ranked anywhere from 27-42 kp.

    Three of the four top Kenpom Big 12 teams are at home. Guess who isn't?

    Bama and UK in dogfights. Both were up big but TTU and KSU have come back with a vengeance

    Heard on the radio, ESPN national radio, that the officiating in that UK/TTU game was some of the worst ever. They didn’t really elaborate, but commented that bad officiating seems to be systematic in college ball.
