Football: Todd's College/NFL Weekend planner


No. 20 Boise State (9-2, 6-1 in MWC) vs. Nevada (7-4, 4-3), 2:30 p.m., (Ch. 8) — It’s been a quiet but successful season for the Boise Broncos. They’ve won 12 out of 13 against the Wolf Pack, but you can bet the Broncos wish they had won the game they lost in 2010, one that cost them a BCS bowl.

No. 13 Florida State (10-2, 7-1 in ACC) vs. Georgia Tech (6-6, 5-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN) — Another riveting conference championship game.  How are 6-6 teams getting into these games? Florida State has been a major disappointment this season.

NFL Games to Watch

Pittsburgh (6-5) at Baltimore (9-2), 3:25 p.m., Ch. 11 — It appears almost certain that the Steelers will be without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, which should make this a near impossible upset for Pittsburgh to pull off Sunday afternoon. The Ravens aren’t really the Ravens on defense, but they’re good enough to stop Charlie Batch. Baltimore wins close games. That’s the Ravens deal. They have Ray Rice, a great offensive line and good special teams. Are the Ravens a Super Bowl team? The record says maybe. The eyeball test says not a chance with Joe Flacco running the offense.

Philadelphia (3-8) at Dallas (5-6), 7:20 p.m., Ch. 5 — No doubt NBC is excited about this barn burner pitting two teams going absolutely nowhere. But don’t feel bad for the Peacock — they had a chance “to flex” this game and pick another one and they didn’t. Philly and Dallas, despite their collective woes, will still draw a huge TV rating. The Eagles play out the string without Mike Vick, plus they have no LeSean McCoy or DeSean Jackson for this game. That’s a lot of offensive firepower out. And actually, not to get your hopes up, but the Cowboys still can make the playoffs. If they get their act together, which maybe they will, maybe they won’t. Man I hate this team!!

  • GC Baseball: Kerens' Anderson makes TSWA/Collin Street Bakery all-state team at four positions

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
