SEC teams are hitting the road on Thursday night for some of their final big time tests before squaring off against one another in conference play. Check out our college basketball picks for the nationally televised duels on Thursday.

College Basketball Matchup: Florida Gators @ Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Date: Thursday, December 29th, 7:00 ET
Location: Louis Brown Athletic Center, Piscataway, NJ
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

We know that the Gators are going to do all sorts of running up and down the court, and we know that they are going to score their share of points because of it. This is a deep UF team, and it won’t be bothered by going on the road, even all the way up here in Piscataway. Rutgers has won three in a row though, and it has had a week to prepare for this game. We aren’t exactly thinking that this game is going to end in an upset, but Gilvydas Biruta and company have the ability to do some real damage. The Scarlet Knights may at least make their former teammate Mike Rosario sweat in his return to the Garden State with his new team.

College Basketball Matchup: Vanderbilt Commodores @ Marquette Golden Eagles
Date: Thursday, December 29th, 9:00 ET
Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, WI
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

The Commodores are the unranked team in this fight, and many are going to take the side of the ranked team from the Big East in a hurry. The Golden Eagles are an 11-1 team, and they have some wins over some tremendous foes. Of course, they have played two games against SEC teams, and they lost one of them to the LSU Tigers on the road. This is a dangerous, dangerous test for certain. Two of Vandy’s four losses have come in OT against the Xavier Musketeers and the Louisville Cardinals. This team can play. Don’t be shocked if the Commodores once again provide a big time test to a ranked team that has high hopes.
