Action-Packed Weekend Of Sports

This would be a really good weekend to move buy several more TVs. Or take your big old carcass to a sports bar and rent a seat in the unlimited wings section. So much to see. Why not match it with too much too eat?

The weekend gets off to a fast start with you leaving work early on Friday to see the Tampa Bay Rays and Houston Astros meet in the American League Division Series at 2:05 p.m. ET on FS1. Justin Verlander gets the ball for the Astros, and that makes this doubly worth watching. He’s the likely AL Cy Young Award winner.

The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees follow at 7:07 p.m. on MLB. The Yankees have owned the Twins in the postseason and the Twins know it. The Washington Nationals-Los Angeles Dodgers matchup in Game 2 of the National League begins at 9:37 p.m. on TBS.

We could list all of the baseball games throughout the weekend, but we expect you will do your part in figuring out when your favorite teams are playing. Thanks. Your effort did not go unnoticed.

In college football, No. 7 Auburn (5-0) plays No. 10 Florida (5-0) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. CBS shows this. Auburn’s true freshman quarterback Ben Nix is fun to watch.

If you prefer the Big Ten, check out No. 25 Michigan State (4-1) and its limp offense against No. 4 Ohio State (5-0) at 7:30 p.m. on CBS.
The NFL’s best offering is the Green Bay Packers (3-1) against the Dallas Cowboys (3-1) on Fox on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. Both are coming off losses.

NASCAR’s round of 12 for the Monster Energy Series Cup moves to Dover, Delaware, and the Dover International Speedway for the Drydene 400 on Sunday. NBCSN shows the race at 2:30 p.m.

This should be more than anyone human being could take in. Make us proud. Gotta watch ‘em all.
