If you thought things would slow down in college basketball after Feast Week, think again. This week brings the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge, a brand new Big 12 vs. Big East series and conference games by both the ACC and Big Ten this weekend. And that’s not even counting intriguing non-conference matchups like Arizona-Baylor, Florida-Butler and Kansas-Colorado on Saturday. We had to whittle the best games of the week down to 13, letting our writers predict the winner.

Thanks for watching!

Season-Long Standings

All times are Eastern.

No. 4 Michigan at No. 1 Louisville (Tues., 7:30 p.m., ESPN)

Pat Forde picks Louisville: The nation’s new No. 1 team hosts the nation’s newest hot coach. The Cardinals have stormed out to a strong start and take over what has been a treacherous top ranking, following the perilous path of Michigan State, Kentucky and Duke. Their first order of business after rising to the top of the polls is handling the undefeated Wolverines, who are making the Juwan Howard hire look great. Michigan is coming off a stellar showing in the Bahamas, defeating Iowa State, North Carolina and Gonzaga. Now they play their first road game, and the Yum Center should be brimming with energy.

Thanks for watching!
