Golden St Warriors @ LA Lakers – 7:30pm ESPN: It’s the Lakers taking on the 1st place Warriors. Yeah it’s early in the season but this is one to watch.
Harvard @ Yale – 9am NBCSN: It’s that time of year when these legendary rivalry games really kick into high gear. Get it started off right with the second oldest rivalry in College Football.
Texas A&M @ LSU – 12:30pm CBS: It’s Johnny Football on the road in Baton Rouge. Why not?
Wisconsin @ Minnesota – 12:30pm ESPN: The battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. A battle of two top 25 teams in the Big Ten. All time series, 58-56-8 in favor of Minnesota.
Vanderbilt @ Tennessee – 4pm ESPN2: Tennessee needs to win out to get bowl eligible. Vandy is already there. Bragging rights for the state of Tennessee are on the line and the VOLS are breaking out the Smokey Grey’s again.
Arizona St @ UCLA – 4pm FOX: Battle in the PAC-12 South and ASU has a legit shot of beating the Bruins.
Houston Dynamo @ Sporting KC – 4:30pm NBCSN: Game to decide who will represent the East in the MLS Cup. 0-0 after first leg.
Baylor @ Oklahoma St – 5:15pm ABC: There could be 150 points scored in this game. It probably won’t be that high but it should be exciting none the less. Weather could play a factor.
Tottenham @ Manchester City – 5:30am NBCSN: DVR it because it’s early but it’s an awesome match.
San Diego Chargers @ KC Chiefs – 10am CBS: Philip Rivers could expose the Chiefs D.
Indianapolis Colts @ Arizona Cardinals – 1pm CBS: Underrated game. Colts on the road against the 6-4 Cards.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ Saskatchewan Roughriders – 3pm NBCSN: The 101st edition of the Grey Cup. And it will be down right Ice Bowl-esq. Expected temperatures around kickoff…probably around 20 with the wind chill.
Denver Broncos @ New England Patriots – 5:25pm NBC: Manning vs Brady for the 14th time. What’s not to like?
Real Salt Lake @ Portland Timbers – 6pm ESPN: Portland needs to make up for those four goals they gave up to RSL in Salt Lake a few weeks ago. The crowd in Portland is always something to behold and their energy for this one should be off the charts.
