The Orlando Magic had a chance in the NBA Finals to make the Los Angeles Lakers sweat and it remains to be seen if they get another one. Courtney Lee missed a layup with less than a second remaining in Game 2 and the Magic ended up losing Game 2 in overtime. Now the series shifts to Orlando where the Magic face a must-win Game 3 on Tuesday.
Miami of Florida travels to Texas A&M on Saturday in a rare matchup between the two teams. Both squads are 1-1 on the season. Miami has scored 55 total points this season while Texas A&M has scored 42. The Hurricanes will probably be without running back Javarris James who sprained his ankle against Florida.
Mid-week college football is back as Kansas State visits Louisville on Wednesday in a game to be televised on ESPN 2. This is the first mid-week game for Kansas State since 1994. This will be the second-ever meeting between these two schools and the first since 2006 when the Cardinals won at Kansas State 23-6. The Wildcats come into the game at 2-0 while the Cardinals are 1-1.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys resume their rivalry on Monday night and if the results from Week 1 are any indication, the game could be a great one. The Cowboys routed the Cleveland Browns last week while the Eagles routed the St. Louis Rams.
The most anticipated game of the college football season takes place on Saturday as #1 USC hosts #5 Ohio State. Either USC or Ohio State has played for the national title in college football the last four seasons and the winner of this game will have the inside track this year. USC and Ohio State have not played in 18 years and both teams are looking forward to the game.
Georgia is no longer the #1 ranked team in the nation, despite winning their first two games by a combined score of 101-38. USC jumped over Georgia in the polls but the Bulldogs could easily surpass them in upcoming weeks considering they play in the tougher SEC. Georgia opens up SEC play on Saturday at South Carolina.
The Milwaukee Brewers got a huge come from behind win on Wednesday as they defeated the Cincinnati Reds 4-3, getting two runs in the eighth inning. Manager Ned Yost has not been one to panic even though his team just completed a 3-7 homestand.
Two teams looking for the national spotlight hook up on Thursday night as Rutgers hosts North Carolina. The Tar Heels are looking for a rebirth under head coach Butch Davis while Rutgers wants to stay on the national stage with head coach Greg Schiano. Davis and Schiano are good friends as Schiano was the defensive coordinator under Davis at Miami. The game is being played on September 11th in New York so there will be a moment of silence before the game.
The NFL’s regular season is underway and fans, experts, pundits, pretty much anyone with a pulse are starving for predictions and some answers as to how they’re teams will perform.
