Saturday Roundup: Dayton beats Creighton

I was probably one of the few fortunate college basketball fans to see Creighton-Dayton on Saturday, since this weekend was dominated by college football on television. I found the game online and enjoyed the entire thing, as Dayton survived Creighton 90-80.

What did I see?

What I expected to see. Two future NCAA Tournament teams playing tough and making other mid majors around the country proud. Although Creighton played the better first half, Dayton was within striking distance to make a run in the second half. The Flyers did just that, thanks to 25 points from Chris Wright.

Honestly not much else happened on Saturday. After a Friday night filled with games featuring top ranked teams, and some surprising upsets (like Texas A&M Corpus Christi murdering Oregon State), Saturday was pretty quiet. I had Cornell beating Alabama , and they did in Tuscaloosa. Instead of going to that game I chose to watch games at home on my computer. That should tell you how good I expect 'Bama to be this year, although Anthony Grant will turn things around soon.

Texas A&M Corpus Christi did give Texas Tech all they wanted and more today, but the Red Raiders ended up winning with a late surge.  Ranked teams were 6-0 on Saturday. 

Picks Update: I had a comment about the "Road to the Final Beer", a picks competition we did last year here on CBS. I haven't had a chance to speak with Beer about it, so I'm not sure what the plan is for that this year. I am picking games on my site (OSF) nightly along with a few writers on my site (one of them is Wizardking). Here's my picks for tomorrow . Anyone that wants to pick along for fun in the comments section is welcome to do so, and if we get a few more people I will create a standings for each post.

Bracketology: This year my bracketology link will stay the same all year long. You can check out my bracket here all year long.

It depends on the game. Usually I can find a good spot to watch them somewhere on the internet.
