    meh….non/con looks kind of lame (though some of those teams are probably better than people think) and no home college gamedays, I think (Saturday at either 9 or TBA..i’m not seeing any except DePaul which obviously wouldn’t happen). Kind of surprising with such a high ranking. Love all the TV games though.
