Two teams hanging around, Ohio and New Mexico, highlight the night.

It’s another light night before more substantial action over the next two days.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to watch, so we’ll set the index at FAIR.

Here are two games to especially keep an eye on:

Toledo at Ohio | 7:00 PM ET | ESPN College Extra/Spectrum Sports

The Bobcats suffered a devastating blow when they lost reigning MAC POY Antonio Campbell for the season.

Yet they’re still in the thick of the MAC race at 4-2. In the first game after the Campbell news, Ohio went to Northern Illinois and knocked off a team that was off to a 4-1 league start. Campbell’s replacement, freshman Jason Carter, put up a double-double in his first career start (15 points, 12 rebounds).

Ohio faces a reeling Toledo team that has lost three of its past four, and is playing its fourth road game in the past two weeks.

Akron, the lone undefeated team in MAC play, and Central Michigan, with bucket-collector Marcus Keene, are also teams to keep an eye on.

Utah State at New Mexico | 11:00 PM ET | ESPNU

New Mexico’s MWC season has been eventful to say the least.

They were on the losing end of Nevada’s massive comeback, and were then involved with the post-game “pleasantries” at Colorado State. But you can now add a three-game winning streak to that list, and it has put UNM near the top of a wide-open league.

The Lobos’ offense can be explosive, and Elijah Brown (21.4 PPG) and Tim Williams (18.1 PPG) have continued to dominate in conference play. Had that monumental collapse against the Wolfpack gone differently, UNM would sitting alone in first place.

But first, the Lobos will try to avenge a 79-75 loss at Utah State on Jan. 4. The Aggies have gone the opposite way of late, losing three straight games, and getting just 18 total points from Shane Rector over that span.
