Tonight is the big game between the Texas Longhorns and Kentucky Wildcats as part of the Big 12-SEC Challenge. So far, the Big 12 is kicking SEC butt. The ‘Cats and Gators have a chance to get a bit of payback for the SEC tonight.

I’d link Alligator Army, but all they want to talk about is their football coaching hire. Can’t blame them, really.

Well, I guess I did link them after all, didn’t I?

  • Matt Norlander says the Big 12 is clearly the best conference in college basketball right now. I’d be hard pressed to argue against that right now, although he doesn’t think Texas is likely to upset UK:

    But it’s that Texas-Kentucky game I’m homed in on. Though Texas clearly has Final Four talent, no one outside of that state is thinking UT will go in to Rupp Arena and give No. 1 UK its first loss of the season. I don’t think it either.

    Neither do I. They’re wounded, for one thing, and for the other, they just aren’t deep enough.

  • LSU gets a big win over West Virginia. They needed it. LSU has been anything but impressive in the early season, but this adds significant credibility to anotherwise weak non-conference slate.

  • Iowa State runs over Arkansas. This was a super-disappointing loss for a team that really needed another resume win. They’ll have one more chance at Dayton, but beating a top 60 team is not the same as a top 25 team (in Kenpom’s rankings). Still, this was a legitimate road game and you are going to lose a few of those. Arkansas still looks like an NCAA Tournament team to me.

  • Ole Miss drops a game to TCU at home. Sigh.
