This Saturday is another great sports day in America. It’s conference Championship weekend in college football. And the USMNT will face the Netherlands on Saturday morning at 10am. Last Friday was great with rivalry week in college football and the US taking on England in the World Cup. Saturday December 3rd might be better than what we got on Black Friday. The US England game was a great result for America. But it might have left something to be desired with the 0-0 score line. The US and Netherlands can not play to a draw on Saturday. There has to be a winner. It might take extra time or even penalty kicks (hopefully not). We won’t be kissing our sister on Saturday morning.
The college football sleights is spectacular. Of the 4 Power-5 conference championship games, 7 of the 8 participants are ranked in the top-25. Purdue is the only non-ranked power-5 team n action this weekend. On top of the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, and SEC championship games, the AAC title game gives us another ranked vs ranked matchup. 22nd ranked UCF travels to New Orleans to take on the 18th ranked Tulane Green Wave. The only thing Saturday is missing is a 10:30pm kick that we can fall asleep to. College Football Playoff fallout is possible in the Pac12 title game on Friday night and the Big 12 title game on Saturday. If USC or TCU lose, Ohio State is waiting in the wings to take the 4th and final CFP spot. One this is for certain: Saturday is another great sports day.
