We're rapidly approaching November 14 and the official kickoff of the 2014-15 college basketball season. If you're looking for your fix before opening night then ESPN will be airing plenty of Midnight Madnesses from around the country, including three mid-major squads.
October 17 on ESPN3 you can watch Crimson Madness at Harvard, Mercer Madness, and Dunk City After Dark. Harvard will air at 6 PM, followed by Mercer at 6:10, and Florida Gulf Coast at 9 PM. ESPN will also air similar events at Kansas, Kentucky, Arizona, UConn, San Diego State, and North Carolina State.
ESPNU will also run at 6 PM on October 17 that will give a live look-in at a mic'd up Mark Few of Gonzaga.
Florida Gulf Coast, Gonzaga, and Harvard are all expected to be favorites in their respective conferences, while Mercer is looking to rebuild from their Cinderella run a year ago. The Bears will be playing their first year in the Southern Conference.
