Given that poll, we have three top 10 teams coming up between now and December 10th. And, given their schedules between now and when we play each of them, I think each could be ranked even higher when we match up.
vs. #4 Marquette (will definitely be #4)
vs. #10 FAU (MSG in New York, NY)
vs. Eastern Michigan
vs. Butler (Bay Lake, FL)
vs. #13 Texas A&M or Penn State (Bay Lake, FL)
vs. TBD (Bay Lake, FL)
at #7 Tennessee
vs. Syracuse (Maui)
vs. #2 Purdue or #11 Gonzaga (Maui)
vs. TBD (Maui)
at #20 North Carolina
vs. George Mason
It is not unlikely at all that FAU is undefeated and ranked even higher when we play them on December 5th in New York City. Tennessee has a much, much tougher schedule, but they could easily hold steady around #7 if they, say, lost to Purdue but won at #20 North Carolina or something. If they win all of those games, they very well could be ranked #1 with some luck!
Here's to hoping we hold up our end of the bargain and make those games vs. FAU and Tennessee top 10 matchups.
