The matchup between MAC and Conference USA teams will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

No. 6 Indiana will host Mike Jarvis’ Florida Atlantic Owls tonight at Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers bounced back from their first loss of the season against Butler with a convincing 39-point win over Mount St. Mary’s on Wednesday. Brigham Young (8-3) travels to Waco to face Baylor (7-3) in the second game of the double header. The players to watch are the Cougers’ Tyler Haws (20.3 Pts, 5.5 Reb) and the Bears’ Pierre Jackson (19.3 Pts, 6 Ast).

I’d be more impressed if the Mayans predicted the outcome of today’s Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl game.
