8 p.m. [ESPN2]
Do not scoff at the Troy Trojans (2-2). After all, they beat Middle Tennessee, unlike another state university we could name. And their schedule includes Ohio State, LSU and Oklahoma State. The Owls (1-4) are no slouches in scheduling, either, facing Texas, Michigan State and Minnesota. And Middle Tennessee, too. (But, like Maryland, Florida Atlantic lost.) The Owls are coached by Howard Schnellenberger, who was named Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year last season, giving him his first conference coaching award at age 74. This game is at Lockhart Stadium, located next to the Orioles' spring training site.
