Setting up Saturday's Big East slate

Mornin', folks! Slim pickings today, but several good opportunities for the Big East to help (and avoid hurting) its national rep as it gets two more opportunities to top the ACC and one more shot at taking down the MAC. I'll be hosting a chat at 10 a.m. on CoverItLive and will be tweeting all of the action throughout the day's contests, so be sure to follow along here. We'll also have our guy David Hale, from NoleNation, on the ground in Tampa, Fla., so be sure to follow him throughout tonight's Florida State-South Florida contest as well. Any breaking news or injury updates, as always, will be here as soon as we get info.

In case you missed it from earlier this week: Our predictions, along with what to watch.

One last look at today's lineup, with some of our coverage from the past week:
