Busy weekend for Pac-12 teams before Christmas with games primarily on Friday and Saturday night. Here are my six things to look at over the weekend in the conference of champions.
1 Friday night the Stanford Cardinal (7-4) travel to Evanston taking on the Northwestern Wildcats (8-3). Cardinal 0-1 on the road, lost the other night at North Carolina State while the ‘Cats are just 5-3 at home. Catch this game on the Big Ten Network at 5 pm.
2 Also Friday is Cal State Northridge (8-3) heading to Salt Lake City against the Utah Utes (7-3) which can be seen on the Pac-12 Network at 7:30 pm.
3 Your football match-up that you want to see but played on the hardwood goes to Southern California (4-7) playing at Georgia (3-7), 10:30 am on ESPN3 for you die-hards.
4 Arizona State (9-2) is in Lubbock taking on Texas Tech (5-3) at 11 am, can the Sun Devils pick up their 10th win of the season.
5 Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic at Honolulu is where the 4 Arizona Wildcats (9-0) will be and they start off facing East Tennessee State (2-7). You can watch this at 7:30 pm on ESPNU
6 Fun fact for Saturday is three teams with the name Huskies will be tangling with Houston Baptist (4-6) at Oregon (9-2) then in Seattle both schools have that nickname Northern Illiniois (2-8) at Washington (7-4)
