Game time: 6 p.m. Pacific Time, 9 p.m. Eastern Time
TV: ESPN2, WatchESPN
Odds: The spread is zero.
What to watch for: If either team breaks 40 points...seriously.
If you like scoring, don't watch this game. I repeat: do not watch this game.
The Aztecs score just 62 points per game on 40 percent shooting, and they recently shot an abysmal 20 percent in their 49-36 loss at then-unranked Washington. Meanwhile, they allow just 55 points per game on 36 percent shooting. They've allowed fewer than 60 points in eight of their nine games this year.
The Bearcats score 61 points per game on 42 percent shooting. It took them the full 40 minutes plus two overtime periods to reach 55 points in their 56-55 loss at Nebraska. But just like SDSU, as bad as Cincy is on offense, it's incredible on defense. It allows just 53 points per game on 37 percent shooting. It's held teams to fewer than 50 points twice this season.
So, ladies and gentlemen, it's hypothetically possible that neither team reaches double digits until the second half.
Wouldn't that be something?
