Your guide to Friday's madness.

I'm not sure how Friday could possibly top Thursday--four overtime games, three upsets, and an Oregon Duck blowout. But it's bound to be pretty spectacular. Two games stand out for potential upset potential. At 4:27, Virginia Commonwealth takes on No. 12 Stephen F. Austin, a 21-2 team that hasn't lost since November. We saw two 12-5 upsets yesterday, and many are saying this could be another. Another potential upset is an 11/6 matchup between red hot Nebraska and Baylor. Finally, three Pac-12 teams are in action with Stanford (vs. New Mexico), UCLA (vs. Tulsa) and Arizona (vs. Weber St.). Here's the TV schedule:
